Instant Pot® Loaded Broccoli Mash

Instant Pot® Loaded Broccoli Mash Cauliflower seems to be getting all of the attention these days when it comes to cutting carbs, so I decided it was time broccoli gave it some competition. This turned out so creamy and delicious and would pair nicely with a grilled steak or anything you’d normally serve with mashed potatoes.

  • Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®). Add water, broccoli, green onions, cream cheese, butter, salt, and pepper. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer’s instructions; set timer for 1 minute. Allow 10 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer’s instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.

  • Using a potato masher, mash mixture to desired consistency. Add Cheddar cheese and bacon. Stir until cheese is melted.

This also works great without the Cheddar cheese and bacon, for those who are watching their calorie intake. You’ll just need to finish it off with more salt. Due to the moisture content and texture, I do not recommend using frozen broccoli for this recipe.
