Instant Pot Butternut Squash Soup (AIP/Paleo/Whole30/Low-Carb)

This Butternut Squash Soup is creamy, delicious and is made quickly in the Instant Pot. It is Paleo, AIP, and Whole30 compliant, as well as low carb!

So soups have been a go-to around here lately. I just can’t get enough of them, particularly puréed bone broth soups!  Not only are they easy to digest, but they also nourish the intestinal lining – super important for those who are trying to seal their leaky gut!

Plus, soup is a fantastic make-ahead dish which freezes well. Having a soup stash in the freezer has been saving me recently.  Whenever I need a convenient, quick meal, I just grab a jar of soup from the freezer, and done! YAY!

Ingredient Highlight

Butternut Squash

Probably my most favourite squash, butternut squash is filled with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants! It is high in Vitamin A and C, which supports the health of skin and hair. And who doesn’t want healthy skin and hair? Butternut squash is also high in potassium which is known to maintain a healthy blood pressure level, supporting the circulatory and cardiovascular system!

Now, you can either use fresh OR frozen butternut squash. I do prefer using fresh when possible. But if I’m in a hurry, with no time to peel, seed, and cut, convenient pre-chopped butternut squash works fine and still tastes great!

Can I still make this without an Instant Pot?

So I’m a huge fan of the instant pot and use mine ALL the time. However, I realize not everyone owns one. It is still possible to make this butternut squash soup recipe on the stovetop and it’s just as easy!

Simply add the butternut squash, onion, and bone broth to a pot over medium/high heat then once simmering lower heat until butternut squash is tender. Then follow instructions from 5-7. If you find it too thick just add more bone broth!

  1. This looks so good, but I don’t have an instant pot! Darn!

    • Hi Penny! You can definitely make this on the stovetop. I would add the butternut squash, onion, and bone broth to a pot over medium/high heat then once simmering lower heat until butternut squash is tender. Then follow instructions from 5-7! If you find it too thick just add more bone broth 🙂 Hope this helps!
