If you ask me, I would say this is THE BEST broccoli cheese recipe on the PLANET! The combination of broccoli, cheese and cream is absolutely perfect! I gobble up all of this soup, by myself in 2 days. It tastes just as good the next day as it did hot and piping from the instant pot.

Are you using your instant pot as much as I am? I’m finding my favorite thing to make is any sort of soup and stew recipe. This black bean soup was a family favorite, and this instant pot beef stew recipe is excellent with fresh or frozen veggies. If I’m really struggling to figure out what to make, I go with this homemade macaroni & cheese recipe!

I do use an immersion blender to make it smooth, but you can always mash your broccoli with a potato masher or simply leave the broccoli as-is for a chunkier soup. Just be VERY CAREFUL when placing your blender or masher into the instant pot as the soup is VERY hot! You may want to wait a few minutes for the liquid to cool.
