Instructions
  1. Hit sauté and when it says "HOT", add the oil and throw in the sausage, cooking it until it starts to look a bit browned, remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  2. Add the leeks into the pot, sauté for about 3 or 4 minutes, add in the garlic and saute for another minute before adding in the chicken stock and potatoes. Check to see if it needs salt and if so, add it now.
  3. Lock the lid, make sure the valve is set to seal and program 5 minutes, High Pressure.
  4. When the time is up, do a quick release, use an immersion blender to blend the soup completely. Add in the kale, program it back to sauté and bring the mixture back to a simmer and cook another fiver or ten minutes until the kale is tender. Return the sausage to the pot and serve.

    Such a great recipe. My kids prefer a more smooth soup so I saute the sausage, add the leeks, then add the potatoes, broth and kale and then set to manual for 8 mins. Then puree everything with an immersion blender. Yum!
