Instant Pot Pepper Soup with Italian Sausage

I went to Sam’s Club and bought some peppers, but it’s not just some, it’s...what are we going to do with all these peppers???  It’s my favorite time of year to make soups, especially in my Instant Pot. I love a good pepper soup made with Italian sausage, onions, rice and seasonings. All you need is a side salad and some Italian crusty bread....don’t forget the wine. Serves 4 Total Time 15 minutes + time to come to pressure. 


1 lb Italian sausage
1 teaspoon each garlic powder, onion powder and Italian seasoning 
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional 
Salt and pepper, to taste 
3 bell peppers, seeded and diced
1 15oz can tomato sauce
5 cups vegetable or beef broth 
3/4 cup long grain white or jasmine rice 


Turn on your Instant Pot to sauté add the sausage and seasonings, salt and pepper, to taste. Cook until sausage has browned. Turn off sauté setting. Add in the broth and scrape any brown bits off the bottom (that’s the good stuff). Add in remaining ingredients, stir to combine. Cover, close steam valve and cook on high pressure for 10 minutes. Let sit 5 minutes before releasing steam. Open lid carefully. Serve immediately.
