You can add mushrooms to this if you like. I would do 1/2 to 1 cup of mushrooms.

I did not add cream to this because I felt the flavors didn’t need to add cream. You are welcome to add cream, but it will change the nutritional values, and you will want to add the cream AFTER pressure cooking. Don’t pressure cook dairy or else it will curdle. Gross.
