I was pretty excited when boxes of cubed butternut squash appeared in supermarkets because it really is a time saver. Unfortunately the quality and freshness varied greatly and the cubes often spoiled before I could use them. I went back to buying whole squash and peeling, seeding, and cubing it myself and discovered the taste was dramatically better. This soup is thick, so add water as needed when reheating.

Instructions
  1. Press Sauté and when the display reads “Hot,” add the oil, onions, shallots, garlic, and ginger to the inner pot and cook for 3 minutes, stirring often. Add the cinnamon, salt, and pepper and stir. Add 2 cups (473ml) of the stock and use a wooden spoon to scrape the bottom of the pot clean. Press Cancel. Add the remaining stock, squash, and apples and stir.
  2. Secure the lid, ensuring that the steam release handle is in the Sealing position. Press the Pressure Cook button and set the cooking time for 10 minutes. When the cooking time is complete, turn the steam release handle to the Venting position to quickly release the pressure. Press Cancel and remove the lid. Use an immersion blender to puree for 4 full minutes. Add more salt and white pepper as needed.
  3. If serving the next day, add 1/2 cup (118ml) of water or more to thin out the soup.

    Step 1 says to add the oil. The ingredients list does not have any oil listed. How much oil are you supposed to use?

    This was just OK. I added some apple juice and a little honey and brown sugar because it was lacking sweetness and needed something to brighten it up.
