Broccoli Soup in the Instant Pot, for Niall

Read over the entire recipe before beginning.

Place into the Instant Pot:

  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • big handful of baby carrots, chopped (or a couple of regular carrots, scrubbed and chopped)
  • 1 large celery stock, chopped
  • large bunch of broccoli, chopped roughly (2-3 crowns, plus their stems)
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup water

Set the Instant Pot to “Soup” for 7 minutes (most recently, I’ve been manually setting on High for 4 minutes, and it works very well).  When the cycle ends, do a quick release of the pressure valve, and remove the lid.

Using a hand blender, or potato masher, puree the contents of the instant pot.  If desired, add about:

  • 1/2 cup whipping cream

and then add chicken stock until you reach the desired consistency; I use chicken stock paste and water.  Add:

  • 2 – 3 cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Let sit for a moment in order to melt, then stir the soup or use the hand blender again.

Adjust the salt and pepper to taste.
