For Finishing


  • Put everything except the cream cheese into your Instant Pot, and cook at high pressure for 15 minutes. Allow it to release pressure naturally for ten minutes, and the release all remaining pressure.
  • Remove chicken with tongs and using an immersion blender, roughly purée the soup and vegetables.
  • Turn your pot onto Sauté, and when the broth is hot and bubbling, put in the cream cheese cut into chunks. Use a whisk to blend in the cream cheese if needed.
  • Shred the chicken and put back into the pot, until heated through.
  • You can also purée the vegetables and chicken together, to get a thicker, more robust soup as I show you in the video. 



Note: if you want to lower carb counts even more, omit the beans, double the cauliflower, and cut back the water by about 1/2 cup. That will give you a soup with about 5 gms of net carbs but it will be less robust. Since it only saves you about 3 gms of carbs, I'm not sure the tradeoff is worth it but it depends on what else you're eating that day :)
