How To Make Instant Pot Asparagus Soup
Peel and chop your vegetables. Set your Instant Pot to saute and add your oil.
When the oil is hot, add your vegetables and saute, about 2 minutes.
Turn off the saute setting and add the remaining ingredients.
Stir to get any pieces of garlic, onion or asparagus that may be stuck on the bottom, and then secure the lid.
Set the Instant Pot to the Soup/Stew setting for 15 minutes.
I prefer to use the natural release, but you can quick release if you are under a time crunch.
Remove the bay leaf.
Carefully transfer the soup mixture to a good quality blender to puree.
Taste and add salt and pepper to your preference.
While there are two potatoes in this recipe and those are usually not seen often in low-carb diets, the approximately 2 cups of potatoes adds only 51g of carbs to the entire recipe (which is over 6 cups of soup).
They allow this recipe to be vegan yet creamy. One cup of soup comes out to 15g of carbs, which is in line with most low-carb diets.
