  1. Clean and prepare the produce, then place all ingredients in the Instant Pot and set the timing according to the manufacturer's directions. 

  2. If not using an Instant Pot, use a large 6 to 9-quart soup pot. The celery, onions, carrots, and bell pepper can be sauteed in a bit of oil first if desired. Then add the remaining ingredients and simmer for about an hour until everything is tender.
