This creamy & comforting vegan soup is the perfect way to use up broccoli stems. It goes great with vegan pretzel breads, too!

Broccoli, cheese & potato soup is one of those things I love to eat on a cold day. It’s a smooth soup without lots of chunks, and it’s so easy to make. I throw everything in the Instant Pot to cook it, then blend it up in a blender (or you can use an inversion blender, too!).

First cook the onions a little bit to bring out some sweetness.
Then add chopped carrots and potato and sauté for a minute. I left one potato unpeeled because I wanted to see if it would taste any different in the final soup. Next time I will leave them all unpeeled. Most of the nutrition in potatoes is in the peels, so it’s good to leave them in!
Cook the soup in the Instant Pot.
After it’s cooked, purée until smooth.
I add in broccoli florets after it’s cooked.
And purée just until the fresh broccoli is chopped finely.
