  • 3 carrots ($0.32)
  • 3 ribs celery ($0.50)
  • 2 cloves garlic ($0.16)

  • 1/2 Tbsp smoked paprika ($0.15)
  • 1/4 tsp thyme ($0.02)
  • Freshly cracked pepper ($0.05)

  1. Dice the onion, slice the carrots and celery, and mince the garlic. Place the onion, carrots, celery, and garlic in the pressure cooker along with all the remaining ingredients.
