Making this soup utilizes your saute, pressure cook, and slow cook functions, allowing you to make this dish with only one appliance and minimal dishes! We used our 9.5 Quart Ovate Series Pressure Cooker to make this delicious recipe.

- 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
- 1½ cups onion, diced
- 5 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth

- 5 cups fresh spinach
- 1½ cups reduced-fat milk (2%)

1.) Pour olive oil into the pressure cooker inner pot and activate the saute setting. Add turkey sausage and cook until browned. Add minced garlic and cook for approximately 1 minute more.
2.) Add chicken broth, potatoes, onion. Seal your pressure cooker and cook using the soup preset,or on medium pressure for 30 minutes. Use a quick-release at the end of the cook cycle.
3.) Add milk, spinach, cornstarch, paprika, and red pepper flakes. Salt and pepper to taste. Set the unit to slow cook for one hour, but turn off after 30 minutes to slow cook for 30 minutes total.
