Cream of Broccoli Soup

One of the things I love most about this time of the year is all of the soup recipes we get to put on the menu! There’s just something about a warm bowl of soup that warms you from the inside out. Don’t you agree?

That’s why this Instant Pot Cream of Broccoli Soup is such a great recipe, in my opinion! It’s quick, easy, delicious – and with minimal cleanup! Plus, it tastes way better than that canned stuff!

I like to make enough soup to have some leftover for lunch the next day (or two) – and this recipe is perfect for that! Let me show you how to make it …

    My friend is on a liquid diet, so I made this soup for him today. I omitted the cheese and added 1/2 cup of celery and carrot. Followed your other directions exactly. I did put the soup in a blender and then ran it through a strainer because he can’t have any particles in his food for 2 week. Horrible, I know, This soup was delicious and when he can eat regular food I will make it with the masher like you suggest. Thank you.

    Can this recipe be doubled in a standard pressure cooker or would that be a bad idea?
