Instructions
  1. Seat glass pitcher on the base of the Instant Pot® Ace and add butternut squash, chicken stock, yellow onion, brown sugar, thyme, and nutmeg.
  2. Secure and lock lid.
  3. Choose the Soup •• program for creamy soup (22:44 minutes).
  4. Once program has completed, carefully remove lid and stir in fresh sage and butter.
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste before serving. Top with a dollop of sour cream, drizzle of heavy cream, and/or sprinkling of pumpkin seeds, if desired.
Recipe Notes

Helpful Tip: Fresh butternut squash should be peeled and seeded.  A 2 1/2 lbs   squash should yield the 24 ounces needed in this recipe. For easier prep, cubed butternut squash is often sold pre-chopped in the refrigerated case of the produce section. Frozen squash can also be used.

Pumpkin Soup Variation: To make a creamy pumpkin soup, fresh chopped pumpkin can be substituted for the squash. 15 ounce ( 1 can ) of pure pumpkin can also be substituted. Also try substituting 1/4 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice in place of the nutmeg.

    Delicious! I added a spoonful of plain greek yogurt at the end amd omited the sugar and it was very savory.

    “24 ounces cubed butternut squash”

    Is that 24 ounces of weight (680 grams) or 24 fluid ounces?

    What size cubes? I made this with 3/4″ to 1″ cubes and the blender could not blend them until 25 minutes into the Soup Program. Got an error message “ISC”, whatever that means.

    Not a review but a question. What it says to use a glass bowl on the base of the instapot, can i just use the metal bowl it came with? Thanks

    I had to look up what an Ace Blender is, and it is a bkender with a heating element. This recipe is not for a pressure cooker, but for the blender.

    Very easy to make, except it wasn’t creamy when it was finished. Had to pull out the emulsion blender to make it creamy.
