Instant Pot Cauliflower Soup

Instant Pot Cauliflower Soup made with beer, spices, and cheese is incredibly comforting and flavorful. Very easy to make in your pressure cooker! You can adapt it and make this dish low-carb and Keto friendly!

Soups are perfect during the cold winter days. There is nothing more comforting than a warm bowl, topped with cheese and crunchy croutons enjoyed under a cozy blanket. Make sure you check our Soup Recipes for more inspiration and if you need help, I highly recommend you try the Slow Cooker Baked Potato Soup, it’s always a hit!
