Put the lid onto the pressure cooker and close to seal.

Set the pressure cooker to cook on manual high pressure for 10 minutes.

Once the cooking time has finished, let pressure release naturally for 5 minutes.

While pressure is releasing, cut the butter into several slices.

Do a quick pressure release to let out any remaining pressure.

Once the pressure has been released, remove the lid.

Add the sugar and stir well.

Add in the pieces of butter and stir until melted and combined.

Pour in the cream and stir until thoroughly combined. You should notice a change in the color of the soup.

This looks really easy. I never thought of using a pressure cooker for soft vegetables as I usually reserve it for dry beans and tough meats. I will try using it for this soup now.
