Instant Pot Potato Broccoli Celery Soup

Finally the weather is cooling down, it’s time to wear sweatshirts, bring out the fall decorations and make some homemade soup in your Instant Pot. One of my favorites is this Potato Broccoli Celery Soup. 

You’ll need at least a 6qt Instant Pot, but a 8qt would be better, as I ran out of room for the final ingredient. Remember not to go above the line on your Instant Pot or it will have issues pressurizing. Serves 6-8 Total Time: under an hour, not including time to pressurize. 


1 yellow or white onion, chopped  
6 russet potatoes, diced 
7 celery sticks, diced
1/2 head of broccoli, cut into florets 
32 oz vegetable broth (make sure vegetables are in liquid, I added some water)
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 tablespoon basil
1/2 tablespoon celery seeds 
2 tablespoons cornstarch 
1 1/2 cups heavy cream 


In your Instant Pot add the vegetables, salt and pepper, to taste and add the liquid, not going over line. Close lid, seal vent then select high pressure for 20 minutes. I did a natural release for 10 minutes then opened steam vent. Carefully open lid, add in the basil, celery seeds (I ground mine). Combine the cornstarch and heavy cream in a small bowl and stir until smooth. Pour into Instant Pot and stir. Serves as a side for dinner or with a sandwich for lunch.
