  • 2 cups Kettle & Fire Chicken Bone Broth
  • 1 celery root/celeriac cubed
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped
  • 2 large carrots chopped
  • 3 ribs celery chopped
  • 3 oz. oyster mushrooms chopped

  • 4 Tbsp. cream cheese
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Optional Toppings:

  • 3-5 scallions finely chopped

Instructions

  1. Set the Instant Pot to high pressure at 10 minutes.

  2. When the pot is hot, add olive oil and chicken thighs.

  3. Brown the chicken and add onion, garlic, and ginger, stirring until aromatic (about 2 minutes).

  4. Add chicken broth and celery root and close lid.

  5. Cook on high pressure for 10 minutes and allow steam to release naturally for another 10 minutes.

  6. Remove chicken, shred using a fork, and then place back into cooker.

  7. Add in remaining vegetables, except the optional scallions, and replace the Instant Pot lid.

  8. Set the timer to ZERO by pressing the “pressure cook” button and then pressing the “-” sign until it reaches “0.” (This re-pressurizes the pot.)

  9. Use the quick release valve to release the pressure.

  10. Remove lid and stir in heavy cream and cream cheese.

  11. Top with optional toppings and serve piping hot.
