Broccoli / Cheese Instant Pot Soup

Even though I named this Broccoli/Cheese Soup, in reality, this is whatever veggies you have in your veggie bin that you have to use up! I used broccoli, bok choy, scallion greens, and chopped onion.

You can either freeze leftovers in Freezer Bags or it will stay fresh in the refrigerator for 3 days. Great heated for lunch!

The cream cheese acts as a thickener. After you're finished cooking, break up the cream cheese even more. It will still have tiny chunks but this is fine...and tasty!
