Easy Vegan Potato Soup

Ingredients
  1. 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  2. 1 large onion, chopped
  3. 4 cloves garlic, minced
  4. 3 medium carrots, peeled and sliced
  5. 3 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and chopped into large chunks
  6. 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  7. 3 cups vegetable broth
  8. 1 -15 ounce can full fat coconut milk
  9. salt, to taste
Instructions
Instant Pot:
  • Push the saute feature on the Instant Pot. Add the olive oil, chopped onion and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until the onion in translucent, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Briefly turn off the Instant Pot, and add the carrots, potatoes, thyme and vegetable broth. 
  • Give it a little stir, then place the lid on, seal and cook on high pressure for 9 minutes.
  • Release pressure manually, using a towel to prevent any burning. Use an immersion blender, and blend until fairly smooth (you may leave some chunks if you want). 
  • Stir in the coconut milk. You may use less than the entire can for a thinner, less creamy soup. Season with salt to taste, and serve with chopped chives and fresh bread for dipping, if desired!
