Gluten Free Pressure Cooker Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Gluten free pressure cooker or instant pot broccoli cheddar soup is the perfect cool-weather meal!

A bowl full of soup with broccoli, cheese and bacon on top.

Who’s Hungry?  This soup is delicious!!! It has been cold in other places in the world lately but don’t worry- this quick soup will warm you right up!  I made this soup in my Instant Pot which makes cooking it fast and easy.  I love my Instant Pot.  It is so versatile.  You can cook rice, soup, meat, stew, yogurt and so many other things in it.  It is definitely one of my favorite kitchen devices.

This soup came about because my youngest daughter was craving it.  She had asked me all week to make it for her.  So, being the awesome Mom I am I did.  LOL.  I am happy she likes broccoli and will eat it!  It was a great addition to our potluck at Bible study this week so it worked out perfectly for everyone!

It’s also low-carb or Keto broccoli cheddar soup!

We have been eating a mostly ketogenic or low-carb diet for a little while now.  We feel better when we remove sugar from our diet.  But, if you don’t follow a keto diet, this soup is still creamy and delicious!
