- Cook Time : 15 mins
1 tbsp (15 ml) olive oil
200g chorizo, chopped in bite-sized pieces
1 large cauliflower chopped into chunks
650g sweet potatoes (preferably white, but if not available, then orange) chopped into 3 x 3 cm cubes
200g tomato passata
1 tsp (5 ml) salt
2 cups (500 ml) heated chicken or vegetable stock
1 cup boiling water
1 Tbsp (15 ml) honey
grated mozzarella cheese (optional)
*To make a vegan version of this soup, exchange the chorizo and the cup of plain water for 100 g cashew nuts, blended with 1 cup water
Press SAUTÉ on the Instant Pot. Add oil to the inner pot and allow to heat up. When hot add chorizo and cook until crispy. Remove the chorizo from the pot and set aside.
Add the onion and allow to cook until soft and caramelised.
Add the cauliflower, sweet potato, tomato, salt, stock, water, honey and half of the chorizo bits (reserve the other half for garnish). Stir well and make sure nothing is sticking at the bottom of the inner pot.
Secure the lid and set to the SOUP preset for 10 minutes. At the end of cooking time use NPR (natural pressure release); it may take around 15-20 minutes for the valve to drop.
*If doing the vegan option, stir in the cashew nut cream at this stage. You may opt to serve as is or blend the soup to a smooth consistency.
Serve with a sprinkling of the reserved crispy chorizo and top with grated cheese.
