Easy Instant Pot Vegan Butternut Squash Soup

This comforting, vibrant vegan butternut squash soup is creamy and flavorful without any dairy or butter.  It would be the perfect healthy addition for Thanksgiving dinner or any fall-time gathering.  Everyone loves the velvety, silky-smooth texture and slightly sweet and nutty taste of butternut squash soup.

This recipe includes instructions for your stove top, slow cooker and Instant Pot.  For me, the Instant Pot is my top choice and I’ll talk about why in this post.  But feel free to use whatever method works best for you.  I have tried them all and love them all equally taste-wise.

I have done three things to make this recipe beyond easy:

  1. I cook the soup in my Instant Pot (a super quick, one-pot method with minimal hands-on time and automatic warmer which makes serving easy).
  2. I use frozen pre-cubed butternut squash instead of whole butternut squash that has to be peeled, seeded and chopped.
