Directions

Heat the butter in the cooker. Sauté the leeks and celery for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, cut the potato slices in half. Add the potatoes and stock. Lock the lid in place and over high heat bring to high pressure. A djust heat to maintain high pressure and cook for 5 minutes.

Let the pressure drop naturally or use a quick release method. Remove the lid, tilting it away from you to allow any excess steam to escape.

Purée half of the soup in a blender or food processor.

Pour the purée back into the pot. Stir in the dill (if desired) and add salt and pepper to taste. Reheat thoroughly and serve.

Variation:

For a creamier, more elegant version of this rustic country dish, purée the entire mixture, but don't overprocess or the potatoes will become gummy.

Made this creamy leek and potato soup for lunch, and it came out so tasty. Don't be fooled by the name, it's creamy but without cream, so it's actually very low in fat and good for you.

We had it with some crusty bread, delicious!
