Joy comes from the ability to be with life as it is.―
Hi friends! I discovered something new in the freezer section of our grocery store. Perhaps it’s not really new, but I normally don’t go down that aisle very often, but one day while I was meandering around, I stumbled upon frozen artichoke hearts.
Now I’m not a huge advocate of frozen veggies, but in mid- winter, artichoke hearts seemed like the perfect time to make an exception. And boy, I can’t tell you how happy I did!
You are going to love this Instant Pot Chicken Artichoke Soup with Wild Rice. If you like brothy, if you like quick, and if you like artichoke hearts, this is totally your soup. Trust me.
Also, know that the wild rice is an “accessory here”. I really love it in the soup, but you could totally leave it out and make this keto-friendly, grain-free and low-carb.
How delicious does this look? This Instant Pot Chicken Artichoke Soup really tastes as good at it looks. What I love about this soup, is after sautéing the onions and garlic, it so easy and so quick! Just put the rest of the ingredients in the instant pot and let it work its magic. Voila.
Manually release and add the artichoke hearts (so they stay nice and firm) and a few handfuls of chopped spinach for an extra burst of nutrition and freshness. Garnish with fresh Italian parsley and a drizzle of olive oil if you like. Soooooo good!
For added richness, add a little fresh grated parmesan or romano cheese, like my husband does….
Or leave the cheese off for a cleaner, leaner version. Totally up to you. I like a tiny drizzle of olive oil and some fresh Italian parsley.
As you can see, the wild rice plays a small roll in the soup, as you can barely see it, but I think it adds a nice texture. You can absolutely leave the rice out, or even add a little more!
This Chicken Artichoke Soup with Wild Rice can also be made on the stovetop, so be sure to see recipe notes!
Hope you are having a beautiful start to your week. We had another dusting of snow here last night. The morning is especially quiet and tranquil.
Sending you love and gratitude this morning for being here with me,
