Carrot Soup Instant Pot Tips

    • Cook time does not include time for the Instant Pot to come up to pressure, or for the pressure to release.
    • For a thicker soup reduce the liquid by about a half of cup. For a thinner soup add an extra cup of stock.
    • You can use a tabletop blender if you don't have an immersion blender.
    • If not vegan, feel free to use chicken stock instead of vegetable stock.
    • You can also make this soup with full fat coconut milk if desired.
    • Using green onions gives you all the flavor without the longer cook time.
