    Came out great! Substituted vegetable stock and used coconut milk instead of cream. Wonderful combination of flavors

    This soup is SO good, and i dont even like butternut squash. Really easy to make and very healthy. The combination of spices is really tasty. So happy I finally got an instant pot and this app makes it even better.

    Replaced butternut squash with delicatessa squash and added honey instead of maple syrup. Mild flavor with the spicy kick!

    Perfect for my first IP recipe! I substituted frozen diced squash and didn’t have cayenne. It is delicious!

    Subbed maple syrup with sweet potato. Also added celery and carrot with the onion. Turned out great!

    A bit spicey but I likey! I added a tiny bit of fresh ginger and I used better than bouillon (vegetable) instead of chicken broth.

    I made this today. I swapped out sugar free maple syrup ( because that is all I had on hand) for the real thing and I swapped out half and half for heavy cream. Ended up very very good! It was a definite hit at my house and only 137 calories for one cup. Definitely a keeper.

    I liked it, but the gala apples i used did not add enough flavor. I like a thicker squash soup, so next time I’m going to swap out the heavy whipping cream for 8 oz of cream cheese like my mother’s recipie.

    Delicious. I added 4 cups of broth to cover all my butternut squash. Hubby loved it served with grilled cheese sandwich. Yum!!

    Wow!! This is one of the best butternut squash soups I’ve ever tasted. The apples and a touch of maple syrup adds a subtle sweetness to it. Absolutely delicious and easy I will be making this again and again
