  3. Add in onions and celery and saute for 2 minutes then press “cancel.”

  4. Add in potatoes, carrots, and broth, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Submerge veggies down into the broth.

  5. Seal the lid on the Instant Pot. Make sure the valve is set to “sealing position,” then select “manual” mode and 9 minutes.

  6. Once the time is up, let the pressure come down naturally for 5 minutes, then use the quick release method to release any remaining pressure.

  7. In a medium bowl, whisk a few tablespoons of milk with the cornstarch, then add in remaining milk and whisk.

  8. Press “cancel” on Instant Pot, then select the “saute” setting.

  9. Pour milk mixture into the soup in the Instant Pot along with cream cheese.

  10. Bring the mixture to a boil, whisking frequently, and let boil for about 1 minute (you can also mash up the potatoes a little if desired).

  11. Serve warm with cheddar, bacon, and green onions or parsley. Note that the soup will thicken as it rests (especially overnight with all those starches, so thin with more milk as desired).
