  • 2 Cups


  • ½ Cup


  • ¼ Cup

    diced red onions

  • 1

    jalapeño deseeded and sliced

  • 3 pods Garlic (roughly chopped)
  • 1 Cup

    almond milk or any milk

  • 1 Cup

    vegetable broth or water mixed with vegetable bouillon

  • ½ Cup

    sour cream 

  • 1 Cup

    cheddar cheese and more to serve

  • 1 teaspoon Oil to sauté veggies
  • chopped scallions to garnish
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Red chili flakes to garnish


  • Set the pot to a sauté mode and add the oil. Add chopped garlic and allow the flavors to infuse. 
  • Now add onions and sauté for a minute or two till the onions look translucent. Add salt, cauliflower, broccoli, and jalapeño and sauté for a minute. 
  • Add broth, milk and close the lid and seal the vent.
  • Set pressure cooking in the soup mode for 15 minutes.
  • After the cooking time, wait for the NPR and open the lid as soon as the valve drops to its original position.
  • Use a whisker or a hand blender to purée the veggies in the broth.
  • Now add cream and cheese and mix well. Add water or broth for a thinner soup. Bring the soup to boil in the sauté mode and adjust salt and pepper. 
  • Once the soup becomes little thick, switch the instant pot off and serve the soup with chopped scallions, red pepper flakes and some cheddar cheese.
  • Enjoy!



  • Substitute sour cream for cream cheese
  • Use meat broth if you don’t want to use vegetable broth
  • Add additional toppings if you like for a loaded cauliflower soup bowl.
  • Skip broccoli and add more cauliflower in this recipe. 
  • Add some carrots if you want.
