Creamy Celery and Potato Soup!

Pressure Cooker Soup!

Tonight we had Creamy Celery and Potato Soup.

It was very good and took FIVE MINUTES in the pressure cooker. How cool is that?

Here is the recipe:
(found in Recipes for the Pressure Cooker Cookbook by Joanna White)

2 tbs butter
2 1/2 cups diced celery
1 cup diced onion
3 medium potatoes, diced
4 cups water
2 1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp dried thyme, optional
1/2 cup heavy cream

1. Heat butter in the pressure cooker over high heat and saute' celery and onions until soft.
2. Add remaining ingredients, except heavy cream, and bring to a boil.
3. Seal cooker, bring up to a high pressure and cook for 5 minutes
4. Remove cooker from heat and release pressure. ( I just released pressure on mine and turned off the unit)
5. Add cream and just heat through over low heat, do not boil.
6. Taste and adjust seasoning

THE FEEDBACK: 9 out of 10! SOUPer Yummy!

KID-mo does not appreciate potatoes and even he ate some of the soup!
(It did take an hour for him to eat about 10 spoon fulls however!)
