What makes this soup so thick & creamy?
Well there are a couple of things. First of all I take half of the cooked veggies and puree them and that adds thickness. I also add a little cream cheese and cheddar cheese which makes it creamy and also adds to the thickness.
Low carb Creamy broccoli cauliflower soup recipe
- Add chopped broccoli and cauliflower to the Instant Pot along with chicken broth and Better than Bouillon. I’m mentioned many times that this gives SO much flavor to the soup but if you don’t have it you can try some standard bouillon.
- Also sprinkle in your garlic and seasonings, mix and pressure cook for 5 minutes.
- Quick release the steam and take out half of the soup and puree it in the blender.
- Then pour it back into the Instant Pot and add the cream cheese and cheddar cheese.
- Whisk until the cheese melts and everything is combined.
If you want you can add in extra veggies to have a more chunky soup or you can puree them all for a smoother soup.
I highly recommend this Instant Pot and a Vitamix blender for puree soup. It makes it silky smooth and I use mine every single day. Seriously between, bullet proof coffee and smoothies I use it daily.
