Instant Pot Wild Rice Soup

This pressure cooker recipe is full of nutrition and is great for when you are busy but want a hearty meal. Substitute the chicken stock for vegetable stock to make this vegetarian.

5 medium carrots, chopped
5 stalks celery, chopped
Half an onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup uncooked wild rice 
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
4 cups vegetable or chicken broth
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning (see notes)
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

For the Stovetop:
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 cups milk 

Put all the ingredients in the first list into the Instant Pot/pressure cooker. Cook for 45 minutes (manual, high pressure). Release steam using the valve on top.

When the soup is done, melt the butter in a saucepan on the stovetop. Whisk in the flour. Let the mixture cook for a minute or two to remove the floury taste. Whisk the milk, a little bit at a time, until you have a smooth, thickened sauce. Throw a little salt in there for good measure. Mix the creamy sauce with the soup in the Instant Pot. Serves 6.
