Chicken brothInstant Pot Bone broth would be a great substitute as well.

    I was so happy to find a diary-free mushroom soup recipe. It was easy to make and a hit with my family. Thank you!

    Really a good recipe. Could I add a medium potato sliced. If I do would the 10 minutes be enough for the pressure cooking?

    1. That sounds good! Yes, I do think that would be enough time, especially if they are sliced fairly thin. They will cook faster in smaller or thinner pieces.

  3. when do you add the sherry? and shouldn't this have cream or half & half? I feel like this recipe isn't complete

    1. You can add the sherry with the chicken broth, I will update the recipe. And this recipe doesn't need cream but you can definitely add 1/2 cup cream at the end if you like a creamier soup.
