Broccoli Cheese Soup

Broccoli Cheese Soup in the Pressure Cooker is quite possibly the best soup I have ever made!  I have been loving broccoli cheese soup for years now…I get it every time I go to Jason's Deli!

Butter Onion Powder Bunch Broccoli Shredded Carrots Chicken Stock Garlic Powder Heavy Cream Sharp cheddar cheese Salt Pepper


This is a simple recipe that produces a delicious soup….I am warning you…double the recipe!  The first time I made this I didn't double the recipe…let's just say that we were fighting over who would get another bowl!

A Quick and Easy Meal

I can honestly say that this Broccoli Cheese Soup is almost as good as Jason's Deli and it doesn't have any Velveeta Cheese it in (which my hubby doesn't care for) so that is a plus for me!  It is SUPER FAST to make!  Cut up all the broccoli the night before or in the morning so that it is just dump and cook! I made this using an electric pressure cooker.  You will need to adapt the recipe if you are using a traditional pressure cooker.

How to Make Broccoli Cheese Soup in the Pressure Cooker

You will start with the lid off of your pressure cooker.  Add butter and heat to high or brown until melted and sizzling.  If you are going to use diced onion you can add it now and saute until translucent. Add your broccoli florets, carrots, chicken stock, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper to the pressure cooker pot.  Put the lid on securely and set for 5 minutes on high. Perform a quick steam release to release the pressure from the cooker. Stir in the heavy cream and the sharp cheddar cheese. Enjoy!
