Top Tips for making Broccoli Cheddar Soup in the Instant Pot
Chop the veggies small: I love to dice up everything really small as it allows the vegetables to cook evenly!Puree: If you want, you can puree the soup ingredients before adding the cheese and cream. It’s totally up to you.Sautee for a while: The longer you allow the onions and garlic to cook, the more intense the flavor! I love cooking my onions until they are golden brown.
Although a hot bowl of this broccoli cheese soup is satisfying all on its own, I recommend serving it with your favorite sandwich. I suggest a fresh cottage cheese sandwich or a crispy grilled cheese hummus sandwich– perfect for dunking!
Broccoli Cheese Soup FAQ
Why is my Broccoli Cheese Soup Gritty?This can happen if you add the cheese or whipping cream while the instant pot is still on. Be sure to turn it off before adding these ingredients!
What can I do if my Soup is too runny?To thicken your soup, you can put a few ladles of it into a high powered blender and blend it until smooth. This will make it thicker.
How do I make this Soup on the stovetop?If you want to make this in a regular pot on the stove, you absolutely can. Simply simmer the veggies until they are soft, then add the cornstarch and water.
Can I use frozen Broccoli?Yes, you can! However, I recommend thawing the broccoli first and then squeezing out some moisture before cooking.
