  • 5 carrots chopped

  • 1 1/2 cups milk


  • Add the carrots, celery, onion, garlic, rice, mushrooms, chicken broth, salt, and poultry seasoning into the Instant Pot.
  • Lock lid in place and turn valve to sealing. Press Manual or Pressure Cook and set cook time for 45 minutes.
  • Allow natural release.
  • When the soup is done, melt the butter in a saucepan. 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. Add more salt if you need too.
