  • pressure cooker
  • Immersion blender or potato masher


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 sweet onion chopped
  • 2 lbs celery chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic crushed
  • 8 cups vegetable or chicken broth
  • 2 lbs gold, white, or russet potatoes chopped
  • 1 teaspoon parsley dried
  • 1 teaspoon thyme dried
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper


  • Set the Instant Pot to saute on normal (or high). Add the olive oil, onion, garlic and celery and cook for 3 minutes, stirring often. Turn off saute.
  • Add 1 cup of the broth and deglaze the pot. Add remaining broth, potatoes, parsley, thyme, salt, and pepper. Do not mix.
  • Close and seal the lid. Set to pressure cook on high for 12 minutes. Let naturally release for 5 minutes, then do a quick release of remaining pressure.
  • Use an immersion blender to puree to your desired consistency. For a chunkier and brothier soup, use a potato masher. Serve garnished with extra celery leaves, fresh thyme, or fresh parsley if desired.


Always deglaze the inner pot thoroughly after sauteeing, to avoid triggering the burn notice.
It's also very important to layer ingredients when pressure cooking, and not mixing them once added to the inner pot. Mixing the ingredients in many recipes also can trigger the burn notice.
