  • Author: smileyspoints


Are you ready for autumn? This one is sure to get you in the mood 🙂


  • 1 medium onion (minced)
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 4 medium red potatoes (cubed)
  • 2 carrots (sliced)
  • 1 stalk of celery chopped (chopped)
  • 4 cups of vegetable broth
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup of fat free milk
  • ½ cup lite sour cream
  • 1/2 cup fat free cheese
  • 3 slices of turkey bacon
  • 2 tablespoons of cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup of green onions sliced.
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)


  1. Slice and cut potatoes into cubes and add to the Instant Pot.
  2. Add broth, carrots, celery, garlic, onion, black pepper and crushed red pepper.
  3. Put the lid on, turn the valve to sealing and select Manual, high pressure, for 3 minutes.
  4. While the soup is cooking fry your bacon, crumble and set aside.
  5. It will take about 20 minutes total, including the time it takes to build pressure.
  6. Once the cook time is over, do a gradual quick release by slowly opening the valve to release the pressure. If you do this part to fast it will make a mess:)
  7. Remove the lid
  8. Turn the Instant Pot to saute.
  9. Whisk together the milk and cornstarch and stir into the soup.
  10. Cook and stir until thickened, about 3 minutes.
  11. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  12. Add bacon on top
  13. Garnish with green onions


Serves 6, 1 big cup each
