Ingredients

  • 5 Carrots Large Unpeeled
  • 1 Yellow Onion Large
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 Inch Ginger Piece Peeled
  • 2 Cups Water
  • 1 tsp light olive oil or canola oil
  • 1 tsp salt if you want
  • Chives to garnish

Instructions

  • Pour the one tsp oil into the inner pot.
  • I use a wadded up paper towel to spread the oil, and in this process, you end up removing some.
  • Start by putting the Instant Pot on Saute.
  • Smash the two cloves of garlic with the side of your knife and peel the paper off.
  • Add the garlic to the Instant Pot
  • Peel the onion and slice it into large pieces.
  • Mix the onions into the Instant Pot.
  • Peel the Ginger with a spoon.
  • Drop the ginger into the Instant Pot.
  • You are still on Saute, and the onions and garlic should be getting flagrant.
  • While they Saute, chop the tops off the five carrots and cut into four chunks per carrot.
  • Add the carrots into the Instant Pot.
  • Let them cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add 2 Cups of water.
  • Set the pressure cooker to warm and then press soup.
  • Put the cook time to 20 minutes.
  • Make sure the carrots and veggies are pretty much covered by the water.
  • Cover the Instant Pot and close the value.
  • The pressure will start to make it so that valve closes and the time will start once the pressure is enough that it seals.
  • Once the timer goes off, use the quick release method for the steam. This means you open the valve and let the steam come out.
  • Make sure it has a lot of room to steam upward so that you don’t steam under your cabinets.
  • Using an immersion blender, blend the soup together.
  • Serve with chives on top.

Notes

Pressure Cooker Note: In all seriousness, I think you can make this recipe with a regular pressure cooker. Just follow the time and pressure settings and skip the individual buttons like Saute and Soup. I have never used another pressure cooker, but I am sure the same principles of pressure cooking apply. Please don’t quote me.
