Since I’ve been converting all of my favorite recipes for my new favorite appliance, this week I made Instant Pot Broccoli Cheese Soup. Now I have another easy family dinner recipe and this one is perfect for Meatless Mondays.
Broccoli cheese soup is one of my favorites and made in the Instant Pot, it’s fast and easy to throw together, just like my Instant Pot Pumpkin Soup. I just love recipes that work for busy weeknight dinners. If you like cheese, you should check out my Melting Pot Swiss Cheese Fondue Recipe (for Instant Pot).
How to Make Instant Pot Broccoli Cheese Soup
I love cooking in the Instant Pot because it makes dinner so fast and easy (and cuts down on the number of dirty dishes!). This recipe is no different. It’s a one-pot meal you can make in 3 simple steps.
Put all the ingredients EXCEPT THE MILK in the Instant Pot – broccoli, carrots, cheese, broth, water, garlic powder and seasoned salt.
Use soup function on Instant Pot and set for 5 minutes.
Quick release the pressure and stir in the milk. Your soup is ready to serve!
For added color, you can top with an optional garnish of sour cream and fresh spinach leaves.
