Pressure Cooker Cauliflower Corn Chowder
Pressure Cooker Cauliflower Corn Chowder. A cauliflower corn chowder made with cauliflower, bacon, potatoes, corn and celery. A perfect winter warming corn chowder that will warm up your bones. In my opinion comfort food doesn’t get any better than pressure cooker cauliflower corn chowder.
Dice the bacon and cook on the sauté setting in the Instant Pot inner pot with the olive oil. When the bacon is cooked cancel the sauté setting. As the Instant Pot takes a while to get hot you can start doing your prep while you wait for the bacon to cook.
Peel and dice the carrots and potatoes and add them to the bacon, clean and slice the celery and add this too.
Add the seasoning, the sweetcorn (including the water from the cans) and 250ml of water.
Place the lid on the Instant Pot, set the valve to sealing and cook for 8 minutes on manual.
When it beeps manually release pressure. If you have any cooked food, you want to add i.e. cooked vegetables or cooked shredded chicken then add it now.
Give it a stir and using a hand blender, blend half the Instant Pot contents and stir in between until you have a creamy cauliflower corn chowder.
I have listed leftover vegetable scraps because that’s what this cauliflower corn chowder recipe is all about. Raiding the bottom of your fridge for vegetables that need using up FAST. In my cauliflower corn chowder, I used ½ medium cauliflower, 7 medium carrots and 4 sticks of celery. You can SWAP this for whatever you have in that needs using up.
If your potato skins are good, then just quarter them without peeling as it’s a waste of good potato skin otherwise. We love Butcher Box and when you sign up, they give you FREE BACON that you can use in this cauliflower corn chowder. We also added leftover shredded chicken to this recipe. If you have spare chicken, turkey or pork that needs using up, then throw it in before blending. The Pressure Cooker can strip flavour from your dish. If this is the case, taste it and then add more seasoning if needed at the end.
