Press the saute button on the Instant Pot – set it to medium heat. Add olive oil, chopped onions and the minced garlic to the pot. Sauté for 3 minutes, or until onions are soft and translucent.


Add the chopped carrots and broccoli florets. Stir to combine. Sauté for 2-3 minutes.


Add the vegetable stock, salt and pepper. Secure the Instant Pot lid. Set valve to sealing. Set the Instant Pot to Manual High Pressure for 10 minutes.

STEP 3: 

Allow to naturally release for 10 minutes. Then turn the valve to vent to quick release any remaining pressure.


Using an immersion blender, blend the soup until smooth, or leave a few chunks of broccoli if you like a chunkier texture.
