I love broccoli soup! Well, I love cheesy, gooey, cream of broccoli soup. I thought my creamy cheesy broccoli soup days were over until I tried this recipe from Nom Nom Paleo!! It's also fast to make in your Insta Pot or pressure cooker! If you don't like spicy, add less curry. I also add a whole apple instead of a 1/4 cup, no need to peel, but do chop! Serves 6 Ingredients 2 tablespoons ghee, coconut oil, olive oil, or fat of choice 3 medium leeks, white parts only, cleaned and trimmed and roughly chopped 2 medium shallots, roughly chopped 1 tablespoon Indian curry powder Kosher salt 1½ pounds broccoli, chopped into uniform florets ¼ cup peeled and diced apple (I like Fuji) 4 cups bone broth or chicken stock Freshly-ground black pepper 1 cup full-fat coconut milk
Instructions: 1. Turn on the sauté function on the Instant Pot, and add your fat of choice once the stainless steel insert is hot. 2. Add the chopped leeks, shallots, curry powder, and a sprinkle of salt. Cook, stirring often, until the alliums are softened (about 5 minutes) and the curry is fragrant. 3. Throw in the chopped broccoli and apple. Stir to mix well. 4. Add the broth. If the vegetables aren’t mostly submerged, add more water, but make sure that the pressure cooker isn’t more than about ⅔ full. 5. Program the cooker for 5 minutes under high pressure. Place the lid on the pressure cooker and go goof off . 6. When the soup is finished cooking, turn off the pressure cooker and release the pressure manually under the stovetop vent. If you overfill the Instant Pot, some liquid might spurt out the top, so be careful! Use an immersion blender to blitz the soup. The result should be a smooth, aromatic green purée. Add the coconut milk, season to taste with salt and pepper, and blend to incorporate it into the soup. Taste the soup for seasoning (again) and add salt and pepper if necessary. Ladle into bowls and serve immediately. You can add chicken or pork to this to make it a full meal. Enjoy!!
