Prepare Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 1 Hour

This hearty soup can be made a day before serving and then re-heated just before serving. Using a hand-held mixer to puree the potatoes and complete this soup in single pots is nifty trick.

3 1/2 pounds russet potatoes (peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes)
1 pound leeks (white and tender green parts only, washed well and chopped)
12 cup coarsely chopped celery
4 cups of water
1 (14 ounce) can chicken broth
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1 pound shrimps (peeled and deveined)
1 cup of heavy cream
1/4 cup chopped parsley

1. In a 6-quart pressure cooker, combine potatoes, leeks, celery and water. Close the lid and secure the lock properly.
2. Place over medium to intensely high heat and let it be on high pressure for about 15 minutes.
3. Let the heat be adjusted to regulate and have high pressure. Let this cook for 10 minutes.
4. Reduce pressure by using the quick-release method by placing cooker in sink under cold running water. Remove lid, tilt pressure cooker away from you. This is to allow any excess steam to escape.
5. Using a hand-held mixer, beat the potato mixture for about 2 minutes, or until smooth.
6. Discard any celery strings that are collected on the mixer. You can also use an regular blender or a food processor and return the puree to pressure cooker. Mix in the broth, salt, pepper, shrimp and cream. Cook covered but with no pressure over medium heat for 10 minutes. Stir in the parsley and serve.
