3 large celery stalks, cut into 1/2-inch-tick slices
1 medium turnip, peeled and cubed
2 cloves garlic, minced
12-15 shiitake mushrooms
Freshly ground pepper
2 lbs of skinless, boneless chicken breast or thighs
One 3-inch piece ginger, halved lengthwise
8 cups of water, or filled to just below the 2/3 full line
2 to 4 handfuls of spinach or chopped lacinato kale
Juice of half a lemon (optional)
Step 1Add all of the ingredients to the instant pot.
Step 2Follow the manufacturer’s guide for locking the lid and preparing to cook. Set to pressure cook for 20 minutes.
Step 3After the pressure cook cycle is complete, follow the manufacturer’s guide for quick release and wait until the quick release cycle is complete. Be careful of any remaining steam, unlock the lid and remove the lid. Use a pair of tongs to remove the chicken and place on a cutting board or in a large bowl to rest.
Step 4Slice or shred the chicken into bite size pieces, and then add it back to the pot along with the kale. I like to add a squeeze of 1/2 a lemon before serving, but this is entirely optional.
Step 5Ladle into bowls and serve.
