Instant Pot Ground Turkey Soup with Rice

A pressure cooker soup recipe the whole family will love!

With this crazy winter cold snap happening across the Eastern United States I’ve been in the mood for hearty comfort food….unfortunately, my New Year’s resolution is to eat healthier. 

Since we’re less than a week into the new year and experiencing negative 5-degree temps, it’s a battle I’m not doing well with!  I really really really want to cozy up on the couch with a big fluffy blanket, some hot tea, and a hearty meal to keep me warm!

Well, who says you can’t have hearty and healthy together?!

Y’all know I love my Instant Pot!  I have been obsessed trying out new recipes and finding easier ways to get dinner on the table each night. 

Well, this Ground Turkey Soup with Rice and Kale Recipe is the perfect one pot meal for a cold winter night!

Let’s make the bread bowls:

Using a sharp knife, cut a circle in the top of each loaf, leaving a 1 inch border all around. Remove the top of the loaf, then hollow out the middle with a fork or your fingers. Be sure to leave a thick bread shell.

Spoon the soup into each bread bowl and garnish with basil.
