Step by step
Like most Instant Pot recipes, this Low Card soup is very easy to make. Using the Instant Pot sauté mode, you will cook the butter and onions until the onions are translucent.
The garlic and spinach are then added for a few moments before adding the chicken, broth, and salt and pepper. You'll then pressure cook the soup on Manual mode for an hour and allow the Instant Pot to naturally release the pressure.
After the pressure is released, stir in the cream and bring to a simmer. Then you simply add the xantham gum and watch that soup thicken to comfort food perfection!
