The Trick

The trick for the perfect Butternut Squash Soup is using a mix of butternut squash, Yukon gold potatoes, and carrots to get a nice full-bodied flavor and texture. Start by sauteing chopped sweet Vidalia onions, and minced garlic in 2 tbsp of olive oil for 3-5 minutes. Use a flavor added olive oil, for a little extra flavor.

Then add in your diced squash, potatoes, and carrots, and fill Instant Pot with stock. Make sure to stay below your max fill line. You want to have stock in reserve with can be used to thin your soup at the end depending on your Instant Pot size. Cover, and seal the lid, cook on Manual/High pressure for 25 minutes.

Once the Instant Pot cooking time is complete, you can carefully quick vent the steam. Then remove the lid, and start the mashing process directly in the pot with a potato masher or an immersion blender, directly in the pot.

NOTE: If you choose to finish the process with a blender to get the soup super smooth, you must be very careful with this process and only blend 1 cup full at a time to keep the hot liquid from exploding!

Once your mixture is smooth you can stir in your spices, make sure to use freshly grated nutmeg it really makes a difference. Then add in your coconut milk and stir until fully combined. I like to serve mine with toasted pumpkin seeds or a swirl of creme fresh and a big chunk of warm crusty bread for dipping.
