I have been making butternut squash soup for years. It’s such a delicious treat, but it takes too long to make so I started making it in the Instant Pot.

Through my recipe tinkering, I discovered that you can add a secret ingredient to make the best butternut squash soup recipe… apples!

Yes, adding apple to your easy butternut squash soup recipe gives it a touch of sweetness and a little extra fall flavor. And the curry gives it a little kick.

If you make this nourishing recipe, you may be thinking it tastes familiar. If you’ve ever tasted Panera butternut squash soup, that’s what this copycat recipe is modeled after.
