Cook Time10 minutes

  5. Now add the white beans and the nutritional yeast (if using) to the Instant Pot and allow to cool for about 10 minutes. Stirring the soup will help it cool faster.
  6. When it’s cool, blend the soup (minus the broccoli florets that you just reserved) in batches in your blender (or all in one go with a blender stick), until all of the soup is creamy and smooth.
  7. When all of the soup is blended, add the reserved broccoli florets back into the pot, along with the parsley, black pepper and a little more salt to taste (if needed). Stir and let cool completely before you place in a container and store in the fridge.
