Chicken-Cabbage Soup with Tomatoes

Yield: about 15 Cups

1 large onion, chopped
1 celery ribs, chopped
1 ½ Tbsp vegetable oil or more as needed for sauté
1 head cabbage, shredded
¼ C juice from the dill pickle jar (or ½ tsp dried dill weed) ½ C white wine
1 quart (4 C) tomato juice
1 16-oz can diced tomatoes
4 C chicken broth (or substitute water) 1 Tbsp chicken base if using water
½ tsp garlic powder (or to taste)
2 C cooked chicken, chopped
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper

Instructions (Instant Pot)
  1. Set the Instant Pot to Sauté, and add the oil. Sauté onion and celery about 5 minutes. Add the shredded cabbage and dill seasoning. Sauté until cabbage is translucent and beginning to brown. (Add oil as needed.)
  2. Stir in wine, diced tomatoes and tomato juice, chicken broth (or water and chicken base), and garlic powder plus any other seasonings you prefer. Bring to boil.
  3. Reset Instant Pot to Slow Cook mode. Cover, and simmer 45 min. If you don't have a regular lid that fits, be sure to leave the steam vent open on the pressure lid. (Instant Pot glass lids are available for slow cookery and other non-pressure functions.)
  4. Add chicken, salt and pepper. Simmer covered 15 minutes.
