This soup is comforting and yummy. I have served it up to my family, including my parents, and they all gave it the thumbs up. This is a recipe to make in the instant pot. The spiral wholemeal pasta keeps its shape under pressure, so I don't recommend using white pasta in this recipe.
Here is a link to the Instant Pot that I have (I have and recommend the 8 litre): Instant Pot 8 litre on Amazon (This is an affiliate link).
2 onions, finely diced
2 large carrots
1 small sweet potato (2 cups), peeled and diced
2 cups chopped cauliflower

400g can chopped tomatoes
400g can (1 1/2 cups cooked) red kidney beans, drained
400g can brown lentils (or other beans), drained
2 cups dried wholemeal spiral pasta
2 kale leaves, finely chopped (optional)
6 cups water
2-3 tablespoons chicken-style stock powder (I use Massel brand)

1 tsp dried oregano

Salt and pepper to taste
Instant Pot Method
Add all the ingredients to the pot and stir well.
Seal and set to pressure cook for 3 minutes.
At the end of cooking, allow the pressure to drop naturally for 15 minutes, then release remaining pressure manually.
