Ingredients

  • 1 pound frozen broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrots
  • 3 cups water
  • 3 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce optional

Instructions

  • Place onion, broccoli, carrots, water and bouillon cubes in inner pot. 
  • Place lid on CPE, lock it and turn pressure release tab to the closed "X" position. Set BEANS/CHILI mode for 15 minutes. Press START.
  • When time has counted down to zero and KEEP WARM light has come on, carefully release pressure by moving pressure release valve to open position. You might want to do it gradually. 
  • Stir in heavy cream. Press START/STOP button to get out of KEEP WARM mode. Switch to SAUTÉ/BROWN mode let it come to a slow boil (about 5 minutes). 
  • Stir in cheese and hot sauce, if desired. Press START button to cancel SAUTÉ/BROWN mode. Put on KEEP WARM mode, if desired.

Notes

You can use 3 cups of chicken broth in place of the 3 bullion cubes and cups of water. I like to use my Crockpot Express Chicken Broth!
