  • 4 cups white sweet potato, peeled and cubed
  • 2 cups carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 2 crowns of broccoli, chopped into florets reserve half if desired, see notes
  • 1 head of cauliflower, chopped into florets
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 cups low sodium vegetable broth or chicken bone broth
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. *Place all ingredients in Instant Pot. See Notes!

  2. Secure lid and set the vent nozzle to sealing position.

  3. Select manual mode for 8 minutes on high pressure.

  4. When timer goes off, carefully use the quick release method.

  5. After all of the pressure is released, remove the lid. Use an immersion blender to puree soup until it reaches desired consistency. Alternatively, you can remove the soup in batches and puree in a regular blender.

For Crockpot / Slow Cooker

  1. Add all of the ingredients to slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours or until veggies are cooked through. Use an immersion blender to puree soup until it reaches desired consistency. Alternatively, you can remove the soup in batches and puree in a regular blender.

Recipe Notes

*Broccoli - I have made the soup by putting all of the broccoli into the slow cooker or instant pot and pureeing it for a completely smooth texture. I've also set half of the broccoli aside and roasted before serving the soup. I then added the roasted broccoli to the pureed soup to give it more texture. Both ways are delish!

Freezer Friendly - Leftovers can be frozen. I love freezing this soup in individual mason jars for lunches. Leave some room at the top of the jar for the soup to expand in the freezer. (I scooped some out of these jars before I froze them.)

We recommend using organic ingredients whenever possible.
