Heat the olive oil in an electric instant pot turned to the sauté mode.
Add diced onions and sauté, stirring occasionally, until soft and translucent, for a bout 5 minutes.
Add minced garlic, making space in the middle in the pot. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until garlic is fragrant, for a further 1 minute.
Pour 1 cup (250 ml) into the cooker, and using a wooden spatula, scrape the bottom of the instant pot, removing anything that might be sticking.
Pour the remaining stock into the pot, then add cauliflower florets, celery, thyme, and salt. Stir well to combine.
Close the cooker and lock the lid. Set the machine to cook at high pressure. Set the timer to cook for 5 minutes.

Ladle the soup into soup bowls. Sprinkle with chopped green onions. Serve hot.
