  • 1 med Butternut Squash peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 med Onion chopped
  • 3 cloves Garlic chopped
  • 2 med White Potatoes peeled and chopped
  • 3 cups Vegetable Broth
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Curry Powder
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • Set pressure cooker to Saute and toss in Onion. Allow to cook for about 2 minutes until they begin to soften. Add in Squash and Potatoes and saute for another 4 minutes. 
  • Add Garlic and curry powder to the Squash mix and cook for about 30 seconds until fragrant. Add brown sugar and mix well. 
  • Turn saute mode off and add in your broth with milk and salt and pepper. 
  • Set pressure cooker to "Soup" setting, set cook time for 15 minutes and place lid on to seal. 
  • Once soup is done you will want to put a tea towel over the release valve and, using a spoon or something long, turn to quick release the steam. 
  • I let my soup sit for 5 minutes before using my stick blender to puree to the consistency we like. 


Stove Top Method:
*Using a large pot you will want to follow the instructions up to the point of "sealing", making sure to saute your onions, squash, potatoes etc on medium heat. 
*At this time you will turn the heat down to medium-low and allow to simmer covered for 30 minutes, stirring every 5-7 minutes. 
*Remove cover and continue to cook for additional 10 minutes until squash is soft and can be pierced with a fork. 
*Continue with the puree process using a stick blender and enjoy!
