Yep! With a pressure cooker you won't have to wait 8 hours for your soup to cook in a crock pot or 2 hours on the stove. If you go to www.instantpot,com and use the code AJ you get a $45 discount. In addition to be healthy and easy to prepare, this soup costs less then $4.00 to make. With 8 servings, that's less than 50 cents for a hearty meal!!!
