Instant Pot Healthy Tomato and Root Soup

I finally unboxed my new Instant Pot and have begun to experiment. I am usually not a fan of such devices, as I enjoy being in the kitchen, the smells that arise from the pot on the stove, and the traditional processes that go along with old school culinary practices. However, sometimes we just need to save time and cut corners.

I decided to unbox, go through my fridge and play. What I came up with, is going be a keeper and a regular recipe. Simple. Healthy. Delicious.
