- 1 lb. ground turkey (85% lean)
- 1 T. Italian seasoning
- ½ t. crushed red pepper flakes
- ½ t. garlic powder
- ½ t. onion powder
- Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
- 6 c. chicken broth
- ½ c. heavy cream, tempered*
- 1 12-oz. bag frozen riced cauliflower
- 2 c. Italian blend cheese, shredded, divided
- 3 T. fresh parsley, finely chopped
- 1 c. water
- Add ground turkey on top of the trivet and 1 cup of water to the Instant Pot.
- Lock lid in place and seal the vent. Pressure cook on "High/Manual" for 7 minutes. Allow pressure to naturally release as you prep the vegetables (about 5 minutes) and then quick release the remaining pressure. Make sure you have hit "Cancel" before proceeding.
- Transfer the ground turkey to a plate and pour the water out of the inner pot. Return the inner pot to the Instant Pot.
- Turn the Instant Pot on to sauté. Allow the inner pot to heat back up.
- Once the inner pot is hot, add in the olive oil.
- Add the onion and celery and sauté, stirring frequently, until the veggies are soft, approximately 4-5 minutes.
- Add the mushrooms, ground turkey, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, and onion powder to the Instant Pot. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Cook, stirring frequently, until the mushrooms start to release their juices, approximately 5-7 minutes.
- Add chicken stock. Simmer for 2-3 minutes or until heated through.
- Add a spoonful of the hot liquid to a bowl with the heavy cream to temper it before adding it to the Instant Pot, as well. Stir to combine and simmer for another 1-2 minutes.
- Add frozen cauliflower rice and 1½ cups of the shredded cheese to Instant Pot and stir to combine. Cook for 1-2 minutes, or until cauliflower is heated through and cheese is completely melted.
- Taste and adjust seasonings, as desired.
- Hit "Cancel" and transfer to individual soup bowls. To serve, top each bowl with remaining cheese and fresh parsley, if desired. Enjoy!
