Yield 10
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Pressure & Release 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 32 ounces fresh broccoli florets
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 4 cups grated cheddar
  • 1 1/2 cups grated Monterey jack

Instructions

  1. Add the broccoli, onion, garlic, and chicken broth, ground mustard, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes to your Instant Pot.
  2. Cover, set the valve to sealing, and cook on high pressure for 5 minutes.
  3. Let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes and then release the remaining pressure.
  4. Use an immersion blender to blend the soup to a smooth consistency. Alternately, carefully transfer the soup to your blender in batches and blend. Be careful while blending hot soup and be sure to vent the steam.
  5. Set the pot to sauté and add the cream and cheese to the hot soup. Stir constantly until the cheese has melted and the soup is smooth and creamy.
  6. Serve immediately with additional grated cheese and crumbled bacon, if desired.

Notes

Stirring in a block of cream cheese with the cheddar will help to thicken the soup up more, if you like it thicker. Alternately, sprinkling 1/4 teaspoon of xanthan gum over the top and then whisking well will thicken the soup as well.
