Potato Soup

Potato soup

  • 4 good russet potatoes
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 big carrot, diced
  • (You can also add leek to this, or replace the onion with leek)
  • kosher salt, pepper, parsley, paprika, garlic powder
  • Additionally: shredded cheddar

So what you’re going to do is:

First, wash the potatoes and put them in the pressure cooker, covered almost completely with water,  for 4 minutes

When it’s done, take the peels off (they slide off with no hassle by now).

Then add 2 cups of broth, 2 cups of water, the onion and carrots, and the spices.

Cook all this for 4 more minutes.  Add 2 cups of milk and then either mash it, use a hand mixer, a fork…whatever you got to make it into soup.  It depends on the day with how lumpy I like mine, but sometimes I like it really smooth, like a bisque.

Put some cheddar cheese on top, and maybe some more salt and pepper if you need it.
