How to Make Pressure Cooker Carrot Soup


  1. Trim ends from carrots and cut carrots into 1" chunks.
    Saute all the vegetables in olive oil in a 4 qt. pressure cooker over medium-high for a few minutes. Add paprika and cumin and fry gently for a few moments, being careful not to burn.
  2. Add stock, lock the lid, bringing to pressure over high heat. When the cooker reaches high pressure turn down the heat to maintain that pressure and cook for 9 minutes.
  3. Use the quick release to drop the pressure quickly and then open the lid.
  4. Puree the soup in batches and return to pan. Reheat without pressure and serve.
