I have been loving making soups in my Instant Pot lately. My latest creation is this vegan cauliflower potato soup recipe. This creamy vegan soup is made in the pressure cooker and with freshly roasted cauliflower. It is extremely simple and perfect for a starter dish or as a yummy lunch. I love that it’s still creamy even though there is no dairy in it. I used a can of full-fat coconut milk to get the consistency of a cream of cauliflower soup!

 

Cauliflower Potato Soup Recipe Instant Pot Soups

The instant pot pressure cooker has become my go-to tool in making soups. This instant pot potato soup took only 40 minutes to make from chopping to serving. If it was made in the slow cooker, it would take 5 hours on high and on the stove at least an hour. It is so much cleaner and easier to make soup in the instant pot. I am actually considering getting a second one for the holidays. I have the 6 Quart Instant Pot right now and really want the 3 Quart Instant Pot for smaller meals.

Health Benefits of Cauliflower

Cauliflower is a pretty amazing food. It is said to have tons of health benefits. I have been reading about cauliflower a lot lately. It is supposed to help fight cancer, boosts heart health, and is an anti-inflammatory that helps with digestion. It’s also super tasty and goes great in soups!

Cauliflower is actually considered a beauty food because of all the antioxidants in it. They help resist aging caused by exposure to everyday pollutants and sun. Here are some awesome cauliflower recipes that you with love:

How to Make Cauliflower Soup?

Start by slicing up 2 head of cauliflower. Remove the green leaves and keep the white stems.

Separate the two heads so that one will go into the instant pot and the other will roast in the oven. Of course, all the stems can go into the instant pot with the vegetable broth.

Next, peel the three potatoes and slice them into 1-inch pieces. This helps them cook quicker

Add one chopped up head of cauliflower with the stems (no leaves) into the Instant Pot along with the 3 peeled and cut up potatoes.

Then, add a full container of the vegetable broth. The boxed kind is 32 ounces.

Next, sprinkle about one tablespoon of sea salt on top.

Put the lid on the instant pot and press the soup button and time for 35 minutes on high pressure.

Set the pressure valve so that it’s close and the veggies will be pressure cooked.

 

Instant Pot How to Roast Cauliflower?

While you wait, roast cauliflower in the broiler at 500 degrees F for 20 minutes. You want the cauliflower to be a little burnt on top. Feel free to spray a little olive oil over the cauliflower before roasting.

I moved the oven shelf to the middle so that the cauliflower would roast slowly while the instant pot soup cooks.

Remove the cauliflower from the oven and cover with foil to keep it hot.

Blend the Cauliflower and Potato Soup

When the instant pot beeps showing that the pressure cooking is complete, you can quick release the steam. Make sure to be safe and keep kids and hands away from the vent.

Also, I vent away from my cabinets because it can get really messy and steam up my cabinets.

Once the instant pot is done venting, Shut it off and let cool for a couple of minutes so that it’s not scorching hot.

Using an immersion blender, blend everything in the instant pot so that it’s smooth.

Then, add the can of full-fat coconut milk and blend until fully mixed. It’s a healthy fat and makes the soup so creamy. Who knew you can skip the dairy and still have a creamy soup!? My favorite coconut milk is from Thai Kitchen.

Serve the cauliflower soup hot and add in the roasted cauliflower to give the soup an awesome heartiness.

Notes

You can garnish this cauliflower potato soup with scallions, chives, and even bacon. If you think of it like loaded baked potato soup, you can pretty much add anything that goes well on a baked potato.
