I really don’t think that there are many things that can beat a warm, comforting bowl of creamy soup. But it can be difficult to make a decadent soup without any dairy. This chicken pot pie soup is both gluten and dairy free but is rich, smooth and perfectly creamy. This family friendly soup is made in the Instant Pot so it takes no time at all, with minimal cleanup. That is always a bonus for me!
This soup has all the flavors of chicken pot pie and it is so comforting. I used green beans instead of peas to keep this Whole30 compliant, and it is delicious but feel free to use peas if you prefer.
I use my favorite trick to make this soup creamy without any cream. After the soup is cooked in the Instant Pot, I take out a few of the cooked potatoes and put it in a large measuring glass. I then use my immersion blender with some coconut milk to puree the potatoes. The mixture gets stirred back into the soup for a perfect velvety texture.
The combination of fresh and dried herbs is what makes this soup taste like the chicken pot pie we know and love. The thyme and sage bring such lovely flavor to the soup. It almost reminds me of Thanksgiving in a bowl. I could eat this over and over again.
