Instant Pot Gluten Free Vegan Millet and Black Bean Soup

Share some yum!

This Instant Pot Gluten Free Vegan Millet and Black Bean Soup is hearty and full of delicious protein. Millet is a seed that is high in fiber, magnesium, zinc, and B vitamins, similar to quinoa. By using dried beans, this entire recipe is nutrient dense while being economically savvy. The black beans makes this soup satisfying and filling, and it reminds you of a chili. Heat from the spices gives it a yummy kick, while the corn adds a touch of sweetness.
