Instant Pot Butternut Carrot Soup

Its officially fall which is my favorite season. Squash is a staple food in my diet and I try to eat as much as possible during this time of year. This is a super simple recipe when made with an instant pot. You can also make it in a stock pot but it takes much longer. I like to use a stick immersion blender to blend my soups, but you can use a regular blender as well. I honestly hate pouring hot soup into the blender, the immersion blender was one of the best investments I have made.

This soup can be topped with many different super yummy toppings. I like to use goat yogurt, vegan sour cream, or coconut yogurt. Roasted and salted pumpkin seeds are also a great topping.
