This vegan tortellini pasta salad meal prep is another easy and healthy lunch recipe. Or dinner. Or even a side dish! It works for so many different meals. The flavors are so summery which I love because I’m hanging onto summer for as long as possible, anyone else?

Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup

Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup

This soup has lots of flavor in it and just a little bit of spice. Nothing crazy so if you love spicy soups (me!), add some more at the end! I like to make meals a little less spicy and then spice them up on my own. It works better when you have multiple people to do that so everyone can be happy!

Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken Soup

Buffalo Chicken Soup (paleo, gluten free, whole30 options)

I am in love with Instant Pot soups. I try to make other options because I know not everyone has an Instant Pot but it is by far the easiest and quickest way to make soup! And they’re so easy to clean which I love. I topped my buffalo chicken soup with some jalapenos and cilantro. Add some tortilla chips and avocado too- so good!

Paleo Chicken and Rice Soup

I love taking traditional recipes, tweaking them a bit, and making them paleo. Basically that means making a few adjustments and removing the grains. This soup is still packed with flavor, veggies, and so cozy for cold evenings. I am big on eating warm food in the winter and cold food in the summer. Some people can eat cold food all winter long but not me. I love a cozy, hot dinner and this paleo chicken and rice soup always hits the spot!
