Ingredients needed for instant pot beetroot soup

  • 1 1/2 lb or 700g beetroot peeled and diced: The beetroot needs to be diced small enough to allow it to soften while cooking. Make sure they pieces are no bigger than a tablespoon.

  • 2 Stalks of celery sliced: The celery adds extra nutrition, flavor and texture to the soup.

  • 2 Cups vegetable broth: Vegetable broth keeps this recipe vegan friendly and adds a great hearty flavor to the soup.
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice: Adding a tangy flavour to your Instant Pot soup.
