Directions:

Instant Pot Instructions:

  1. Spray the lining of your instant pot with olive oil or coconut oil cooking spray.  Add the butter and onions and cook for several minutes or until translucent. Add the garlic and cook for one more minute. De-glaze with the beer, making sure you get up any browned bits in the bottom of the pot.
  2. Then add the broth, salt, carrots & cauliflower. Turn off the saute function, close the lid and set to manual for 4 minutes. When it’s finished cooking, you can immediately release the pressure.
  3. Remove the lid and blend the soup with an emulsion blender or in a food processor until smooth and creamy
  4. Stir in the mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and shredded cheese until cheese is melted.
  5. Top with bacon, Franks Red Hot, and green onions, and enjoy!
