There’s nothing like a warm bowl of vegetable soup when it’s below freezing outside! This venison vegetable soup recipe incorporates a few non-traditional vegetables – expanding from the basic corn and green beans you find in most vegetable soup recipes.

The recipe calls for using an Instant Pot (pressure cooker), but check the notes section because we’ve also included directions for using a slow cooker and stove-top.

No venison bones, no problem! You can order venison bones easily from The Honest Bison. Or, we’ve also included instructions for how to use beef bone broth with ground venison for a ground venison vegetable soup recipe.
