To make this Instant Pot Broccoli Cheddar Soup, it all starts with the Instant Pot. Simply add half the ingredients in, cook for 1 minute, then mix in the remainder of the ingredients. Although it is easy and quick to make and come together it does take a little bit of prep work before by prepping the broccoli, celery, onions, and carrots. To save time, I use a bag of prepared julienned carrots. Once you have the vegetables prepared, its time to get making the soup.

With the Instant Pot simply saute the onions and garlic with the butter for a few mintues. They will look translucent and slightly browned on the edges. Then add the broccoli, carrots, celery, and chicken broth. Place the lid on the instant pot and lock to sealing. Set the pot to cook on manual for 1 minute. While the vegetables are cooking, is the time to prepare the cream sauce by melting the butter and whisking in the flour to make a creamy mixture. Once the broccoli is finished cooking and done venting, open the Instant Pot lid. Then change the setting back to Saute continue to warm through the new ingredients. Here is when you can add in the butter/flour mixture and whisk that in. Then add the half and half and the cheddar cheese and stir in until it is warmed though out and the cheese is melted. Ladle out the soup into bowls and enjoy the Instant Pot Broccoli Cheddar Soup.

If you like the broccoli cheddar soup from Panera, you will love this! And especially how easy and delicious it is. It can be a stand alone meal as it is hearty and filling. Or pair it with a little bread or a side salad for a more complete meal.
