It's fall season, Halloween is around the corner, and what better to warm you on those dark nights than a creamy bowl of spiced pumpkin soup in super quick time and all in your Instant Pot.
The evenings are getting darker, the leaves are falling and thoughts turn to cozy nights in front of the fire. If like me, you are constantly pushed for time then this is the perfect recipe for your Instant Pot, packed full of nutrients and immune-boosting vitamins, particularly Vitamin A this will satisfy the hungriest of bellies.
Serve it with warm buttered crusty bread or for a more filling dinner with grilled cheese sandwiches.
Instant Pot Spiced Pumpkin Soup
2 tbsp oil or butter
1 cup onion diced

This soup can be made in the oven/stovetop if you do not have an Instant pot. Simply roast your pumpkin in the oven with a little oil until soft (approx 40 mins)
