Pressure Cooker Potato Soup

It’s no secret that I LOVE soup. But what you might not know is that I really love potato soup! I mean, a loaded baked potato is one of the greatest inventions ever. So, when in soup form, it takes me to my happy place. Well, this pressure cooker potato soup does just that, with an easy process that is pretty much foolproof.

 

What’s special about this recipe?

There are a few things that I’d say set this pressure cooker potato soup apart from most. First and foremost… it’s gluten-free – which means my wife can actually eat it! That’s one of my biggest goals in life – creating delicious gluten-free recipes so that she can enjoy the food we all love. Secondly, this soup is very hearty and has a chowder-like texture with noticeable chunks of potato. I’m not the biggest fan of puréed potato soups.
