This is a my very favorite soup. I've adapted it from a recipe given to me by my mother-in-law.

3 c. water
1 T. vegetable broth powder
1 to 2 c. potatoes, diced
2 carrots, diced or grated
1 large sweet onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced (1/2 t. fridge garlic)
2 T. fresh cilantro
1 T. dried basil
2 t. chili powder
1/4 t. ground cloves
1 t. salt
2 cans great northern beans, undrained*
1 c. frozen sweet white corn**

• Cook all ingredients, except for corn, until vegetables are desired texture.

• Add frozen corn, and serve.

*Any variety of white bean works.

**I love Costco's sweet white corn in this.

Pressure Cooker Instructions:

Put all ingredients except corn in a pressure cooker. Cook on low pressure, 1 minute, quick release. Add corn.

I actually turn the pressure cooker on (low pressure, 1 minute, start) but leave the lid off as I chop and add ingredients in this order: broth, onion, garlic, carrots, potatoes, beans, spices. This allows the onions and garlic to soften and start to cook before the other ingredients.
