Ingredients

  • 3 cups broccoli chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion finely diced
  • 1 tbsp fresh garlic minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cajun seasoning
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 5 slices bacon cooked, fat drained
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients minus cream, bacon and cheddar to the inner pot of the pressure cooker. Stir to combine.
  • Close lid and close off vent. Select Soup and Normal pressure. Set timer to 10 minutes. It will take the pot 10-15 minutes to build pressure before cooking time starts.
  • While pressure cooker is going, fry up bacon (optional addition), drain grease and crumble
  • After pressure cooker is finished, allow steam to natural release for 10 minutes. Then quick release the rest of the way.
  • Remove inner pot from cooker (it will be hot so use caution!) and set on a hot pad. 
  • Stir in cream and bacon. Then use a whisk and slowly stir in cheddar cheese in small amounts to prevent clumping. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes to give the cream and cheese time to thicken the soup.
  • Serve hot

  • Add all ingredients minus cream, bacon and cheddar to the pot of a Slow Cooker. Cook on high 4 hours or low 8 hours.
