Cauliflower Soup Instant Pot
Wondering how to make Cauliflower Soup in the Instant Pot? Here’s how!
Follow the recipe above, roasting the cauliflower in the oven through step 6.
Then, in step 7, set the Instant Pot to sauté and cook the onion in oil for 5-10 minutes until softened and browned.
Add the roasted cauliflower and water (if you are making vegan cauliflower soup), or stock, if you are like me and need all the protein you can get!
Lock the lid into place and and set to high pressure for 5 minutes.
After, that return to step 11 of the recipe above, pureeing the cauliflower, as directed, then reheating soup in the Instant Pot, and serving.
