5 Ingredient Instant Pot Soup recipes

If this is your first fall and winter season to go RVing, welcome to the most wonderful time of the year! The temps are fantastic, the campgrounds are less full, the days are a little shorter and you find yourself curling up with a good book more than in the summer months. 

The fall and winter RV lifestyle is the best.

The RV Lifestyle in Fall and Winter

We’ve done quite a bit of RV camping when the temperatures drop and it’s time to turn on the heater. We’ve learned some hard winter RV living lessons, as well as soaked in every minute of gorgeous fall camping in places like Glacier National Park.

One of my favorite things to do when the temperatures start to drop is to break out the Instant Pot for some soup.

There’s something special about eating a bowl of soup in the comfort of your RV while watching it lightly snow outside. We’ve also experienced enjoying a bowl of warm goodness while listening to the elk calls in Rocky Mountain National Park.

What I’m saying is…soup and the RV lifestyle pair well together. 

Why 5 ingredients or less?

There are three reasons we’re featuring recipes with just a few ingredients: lack of space in your RV kitchen, lack of grocery choices while traveling and because simplicity is awesome.

Because let’s face it, the RV lifestyle is enjoyed more when you whole-heartedly embrace simplicity. That’s one reason we chose this lifestyle, am I right? 

It’s nice to have recipes in your arsenal that don’t require a long list of ingredients because that aligns with what RV living is all about.

When I would plan our menu while traveling to our next destination (this is how I meal planned and grocery shopped efficiently while RVing full-time), if a recipe had a long list of ingredients, it was a no for me.

*Side note about five ingredients: There are some recipes listed below that if you count things like salt, pepper, olive oil, water and a few spices add up to more than five ingredients. When I say five ingredients, I mean the main part of the soup and am not counting the ingredients most of us have on hand all the time. 

Why the Instant Pot?

The Instant Pot made it onto my list of 7 RV kitchen essentials and for good reason. 

Why is it essential?

  • It saves me time, cooking things way faster than on the stove or with a crockpot
  • Using the oven heats up the RV really fast and that’s miserable in the summer
  • It uses electricity instead of our precious propane in the colder months
  • It’s only one pot I have to clean
  • Rice turns out perfect every time
  • Quinoa turns out perfect every time
  • Potato soup turns out perfect every time

Some RVers prefer using a crockpot and there’s nothing wrong with that. A crockpot might just work best for you!

I stayed away from team Instant Pot for a long time because I just didn’t get it. Plus, it seemed like a terrifying kitchen gadget that if I did one little thing wrong, it would blow up our home.

But I finally gave in and bought one, used it a few times and to make a long story short…became hooked on this way of cooking. Especially when it comes to RV cooking.

So, without further ado, I hope you find an Instant Pot soup recipe or two your family will enjoy.

P.S. Know that I included a stew and a few chili recipes in this list. Although they may not be “soup” by a hard definition, I included them because they are warm, served in a bowl, eaten with a spoon and can be slurped…just like soup. 😉
