This 5-ingredient Instant Pot Keto Broccoli and Cheese Soup couldn’t be easier to whip up! It’s savory, cheesy, and all around delicious. All you need to make this creamy low-carb soup is broccoli, onion, cheddar, stock and cream - plus seasoning to taste. Easy peasy keto friendly dish in under 30 minutes!

Instant Pot in not just an electric pressure cooker. I use it to brown and sauté vegetables and meat before pressure cooking. It can even be used as a slow cooker and steamer. It’s a staple kitchen appliance for quick & easy cooking on a lchf diet.

One serving will provide a good amount of electrolytes - sodium, magnesium and potassium - all of which are important during the initial phase of the ketogenic diet and help you avoid the symptoms of keto flu.

It’s one of those keto recipes you will make over and over again!

Hi, what if I don't have Instant Pot? Can it be done in pot or slow cooker? Thank you

Reply

Yes, it can! I've used my slow cooker for a similar recipe. Just cook all the ingredients (apart from the cream and cheese) and cook on high for 2-3 hours. Then add the cream and process (until smooth or chunky) using an immersion blender.
