Butternut Squash Soup

Making Butternut Squash Soup CAN be quick, easy and tasty thanks to the Instant Pot. Peel, cut, toss it in and tada! Soup is done! Well, almost done. I do love adding apples and cinnamon to give it that extra yum factor. A dollop of yogurt, that was also made in the instant pot, is the final finishing touch to this delicious soup. For the yogurt recipe, make sure you have the yogurt function on your Instant Pot. You can find my yogurt recipe here.
