Instant Pot Pumpkin Soup

Pumpkin lovers, this one’s for you!

This creamy, 5-ingredients pumpkin soup recipe is super easy to cook. Instant Pot, as always, does a great job of reducing the cooking time while bringing out the flavors.

But just in case you don’t own an IP, you can easily make this in a conventional pressure cooker (instructions below).

I used a portion of sweet corn along side roughly sliced pumpkin for the soup. It might sound like a weird combo, but this duet is just so flavorful!

An immersion blender would make it more easier to prepare this soup. For those of us who don’t own one, a normal blender will just do the work.

You can spice it up with generous amount of pepper and smoked paprika, like I have.
