  • 4 large Yukon gold potatoes cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 large leeks chopped
  • 1 medium yellow onion chopped
  • 4 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp chives chopped
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne (optional)
  1. Set instant pot to sauté mode. Add butter, onion, and leeks. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened (about 5 minutes).

  2. Add garlic, salt, pepper, cayenne, potatoes, and broth. Put lid back on pot and close steam valve. Manually set instant pot to 7 minutes. When done, let pot naturally release (don't do anything until pot releases pressure naturally, about 10 minutes).

  3. When pot has depressurized, remove lid and stir in cream and cheddar cheese. Top with chives and serve.
