We LOVE Broccoli & Cheddar soup in this house! It’s creamy, comforting and the fact that it has some broccoli in it also makes it feel more of a healthier choice (even thought we know it isn’t). We’ve been picking up take out from Panera Bread for a while and although we love their version, I felt really guilty feeding it to Shaan because I feel like it didn’t have much substance to it. I always like to add in a grain or pasta to his soups to make them a bit for filling. SO, I set out to make a version of my own that I could feel good about giving him. Turns out, the recipe was just WAY too good to make it solely a “toddler recipe”. Dev & Chandani (who normally wouldn’t touch quinoa) absolutely loved this and said it was better than traditional broccoli cheddar soup! It’s an easy weeknight meal, vegetarian recipe and it is under 30 minutes to make! It literally checks all the boxes.
Here are some more of my favorite Instant Pot Meals:
This entire recipe gets made in the Instant Pot so I love that it has minimal dish washing after, and it reheats REALLY well so you can make a batch and reheat it. I hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as I did and if you choose to make it, please be sure to tag me on @thechutneylife (I especially love watching your little ones eat my recipes- best thing ever!!).
