Instant Pot Potato Leek Soup
This is one of the recipes from one of our restaurants and came from our swiss chef.
It is a simple and tasty soup that is fast to make. You can have it hot in the Winter, however, in the Summer I have often had it chilled. If Potato Leek soup is cold then it is called vichyssoise.
So do not delay making this simple recipe in your electric pressure cooker.
Course: Dinner, Soup
2 garlic cloves
1/2 cup cream (heavy cream if you love)
4 medium potatoes – you can use yellow potatoes – Yukon gold or whatever you love
3 cups water or chicken or vegetable stock
salt and pepper to taste
raw sugar to taste
1 tablespoon oil
Bacon Bits (see our recipe how to make crispy bacon love the restaurants do)
You can also top the bacon leek soup with parsley, or sour cream or whatever takes your fancy.
Press the Sauté button on the Instant Pot and set it to extra hot. When the display reads ‘Hot’, add the oil.
Add the onions first and stir till slightly soft.
Add the leeks and garlic and stir. Cook them until soft, stirring occasionally.
Add the potatoes and stir
Season with salt and pepper
put the pressure cooker lid on and set the steam release knob to the Sealing position.
Press the Manual (or Pressure Cook) button, and the + or – button to choose 10 minutes.
When the cooking has ended and the instant pot has beeped, let the pot naturally release the pressure for 10 minutes. Then carefully manually release the remaining steam.
When the pin in the pot lid drops, open it and stir the soup.
Next use an immersion blender to puree it. [ If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can use a normal blender, you may have to resort to pureeing the soup in small batches very carefully.
Stir in the cream.
Taste and adjust salt, if needed.
Garnish with chopped fresh chives and sour cream. Green onions can also be used. I have even heard people using coconut milk instead of cream to make it a vegan leek potato soup.
Serve hot or chilled. It is a great pot leek soup.
Can I freeze this Potato Leek Soup?
Yes, this soup freezes well. Pour any leftover soup into freezer containers, label, and freeze, and you’ll have lunch or a snake for another day.

How to cut leeks
The best way to prepare leeks for. soup is to cut them and then wash them with water. Doing this you be sure to wash out any little dirt that may be hiding between the layers of the leeks.
Then begin by trimming off and discarding both the root stop and the dark green stop. You will want to only use the white and light green parts which are the best bits of the leek.
Then, cut the leek in half lengthwise.
Finally, cut the leek into thin half moons. This makes them cook great in a pressure cooker as well as a pot.

Yes, you can. If you don’t live a dairy-free lifestyle, you can add in cheese, sour cream or even heavy cream as well.
Is Instant Pot Leek Soup Vegan?
Yes if you choose your ingredients love coconut or soy cream.
