Barley Soup in the #InstantPot #Vegan

Y'all, I am just plain crazy about my Instant Pot for making soup. I'm one of those people who puts soup on to cook then goes away and forgets about it until it sets off the smoke alarm.

Smoke Alarm Soup is not good.

So the Instant Pot is a godsend for us, where soup is concerned.

The other day, I made this:

Mushrooms, hominy, diced carrots, shallots, vegetable bouillon, water (of course), and barley. Put it in the Instant Pot, seal it, hit the Soup button, and Bob's yer uncle.

I don't use an instant pot (my kitchen lacks room for any more toys). So, my soups are made the old-fashioned way- slow boil for a few hours to accumulate all the flavors.

Yeah, that's a good way. I made room for my Instant Pot by donated my pressure cooker, since the Pot is also a pressure cooker. But the slow boil method has the extra benefit of making the house smell delicious. :)
