Riffs on Soup

Since I'm cooking for a table full of people on busy days, I'm often throwing things in a pot (er, the instant pot)and I just thought I'd share that a soup doesn't just have to be a soup! Most times, I'm using the soup as a crutch - all the chopping and major seasoning done, main vegetable component of the meal ready, I can focus on adding other things and it's super easy and fast.
