Last year for Christmas I got an Instant Pot, and it was the highlight of my Christmas! Pot roasts, sweet potatoes, and baked chicken have been some of my favorite tries so far. I’ve had a couple of epic failures as well, but mostly the appliance has been a great addition to my kitchen tool kit.
Last week we had a cold and snowy Saturday afternoon, and around 4:30 I decided that potato soup sounded like just the thing for dinner. Trouble was, we needed to eat by around 5:30 that night, and I didn’t really have the time to let the potatoes cook and simmer long enough to get soft and squishy. So, I decided to pull out the Instant Pot and try out a soup for a change!
Instant Pot recipes can be a bit finicky with the amount of liquid required, and I didn’t have a potato soup recipe in my Instant cookbook so I decided to go to the Internet to look at proportions and basic ingredients. I found a great recipe by Ashyln Edwards at “Belle of the Kitchen”. I didn’t have all of the ingredients it required, so I made a few substitutions and additions and ended up with a great dinner that my 7-year-old declared “danced down his throat!” This will definitely be one of our family staples. Enjoy!
