Easy Butternut Squash Soup
This easy butternut squash soup is made in the Instant Pot and is the perfect healthy meal for fall!
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
- 1 large carrot, chopped
- 1 celery rib, chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic, minced
- 3 lbs peeled chopped butternut squash (about 1 medium sized squash)
- 3 cups vegetable broth
- 1 green apple, peeled, cored, and chopped
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 sprig fresh thyme
- 1 sprig fresh rosemary
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- Pinch of nutmeg, optional
On your Instant Pot, select Sauté. Add the olive oil and sauté the onion, carrot, celery, and garlic until soft, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the vegetable broth, butternut squash, apple, nutmeg, cinnamon, thyme, rosemary, salt, pepper, and nutmeg, if using.
Place the lid securely on the Instant Pot and move the knob to seal. Cook on high pressure for 10 minutes and do a quick release of the pressure.
Use an Immersion blender in the Instant Pot to puree the soup until smooth. If you don't have an immersion blender, you can let the soup cool a little and carefully transfer the soup to a regular blender and blend until smooth.
Ladle the soup into bowls and serve warm.
