In this post, I share the first recipe I made in my new 3 quart Instant Pot.  This is the tastiest homemade potato soup recipe.

One of my favorite meals to whip up during the cooler seasons of the year is Potato Soups.  Today I am excited to share my very first recipe created in the Instant Pot.


  • 5 small yellow potatoes cut into bite-size pieces
  • Homemade Soup Mix from Brown Bag Market Store or (salt, pepper and 2 teaspoons of flour)
  • 1 small sweet onion diced
  • 2 celery stalks diced up to bite-size pieces
  • Milk
  • Water
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

In my recipe, I threw in some real bacon pieces and topped them with my Spicy Salad Microgreen mix.  You can top your soup with anything you like including chives, cheese, and even sour cream.  Be creative and use what you have on hand.

This was my first time using the Instant Pot and I made a little ‘boo-boo’.  In the video, I edit out the mistake and noted what to do if you get the ‘BURN FOOD’ warming on the Instant Pot.  It is going to happen… trust me.  When you get that warning it doesn’t mean you’ve destroyed your meal it just means you need to make some adjustments to the pot so don’t panic.

Instant Pot Potato Soup Recipe

  • 1 cup of yellow potatoes cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/2 cup of sweet onion diced
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 teaspoons of flour (to thicken)
  • 1/3 cup of diced celery up to bite-size pieces
  • 2 cups of Milk

  1. Using the 3 quart Instant Pot saute the onion in 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  2. Stir in the celery and potatoes before adding water
  3. Cook the vegetables on the Pressure Cooker setting. See chart on your instant pot. Mine cooked for 4 minutes.
  4. Manually release the pressure
  5. Set Instant Pot on ‘Sauté’ mood before stirring in salt, pepper , flour and Milk. Bring to boil and stir continuously so it doesn’t stick or burn to bottom of the pot.
  6. After about 5-8 minutes or until the mixture is creaming turn Instant Pot to ‘warm’ setting.
  7. Serve with favorite toppings or microgreens and bacon as suggested in this post.

  1. Great looking recipes! The potato soup makes me hungry!

    1. Hey Elena -I plan on making another favorite today so stay tuned.
      Thank you so much for stopping by my website to see what the recipe video and images look like. I hope you were able to watch the video.


  2. I tried the manual release method and had potato soup spitting out!! The soup that was left was very yummy 😋.

    1. I have that happen with my pasta water when doing an early release with the Instant pot. I think it is the amount of liquid that makes its way to the top in a smaller appliance. My instant pot is a 3 Qt. The Electric pressure cooker I use is a 8 Qt and I have not had any liquid ‘spit’ out the top. I am really glad you liked the soup!!! Thank you so much for commenting. I’ll be sure more recipes this month so stay tuned!
