This was delicious and a hit with the whole family. I only did 4 cups of broth as we like our soup a bit thicker. Didnt have any sage or cilantro to add, but everyone loved it anyway. Thanks!

Really good soup and a great way to further experiment with my insta-pot. I I didn't have any celery, but left that out and we don't like cilantro so didn't do that either. I also used one cup cream and two cups half and half and that was plenty rich. Soup was done from start to finish (chopping vegetables to dishing it up) in just over an hour and hit the spot on a chilly Sunday night.
