You are in a treat with this easy Instant Pot apple soup with butternut squash recipe. It will surely become a family favourite. It’s delicious, healthy, and very economical!

You may usually serve the soup with bread to dip and wipe up any remaining streaks in the bowl. Grilled cheese is a great option if you have sandwich bread. However, if bread is not available, you can always rely on a pan of cheesy drop cookies or French bread.

How to Make Instant Pot Apple Soup with Butternut Squash

An instant pot is used to make this soup. This means there is one dish to clean, and it can be started quickly. Then, you can go and do other things while it cooks. You may also use a stovetop to make this soup.

The soup is best finished with fresh cream or homemade yoghurt. However, both are optional. For some crunch, you could add some roasted sunflower or pumpkin seeds, or croutons to the soup.
