Pressure Cooker Curried Cauliflower and Squash Soup


Ingredients :

  • 2 T avocado oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 2 tsp sea salt (may need to decrease if your curry powder has salt in it)
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 med-large head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 10oz bags frozen butternut squash (or use leftover cooked squash)
  • 2-3 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth, divided
  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk
  • 2 TBSP coconut aminos
  • Apple cider vinegar to taste (we like about 3 splashes)


  1. Set your pressure cooker to sauté mode and add avocado oil. Sauté onion until translucent, about 7 minutes. Add garlic, ginger, curry powder, salt, and cumin. Sauté for about 1 min. Add cauliflower florets and squash, stir to coat with spices. Add 2 cups of broth and can of coconut milk, stir to combine. Turn off pressure cooker, lock lid in place and turn vent to “sealing” mode. Set the pressure cooker to manual high pressure mode and use the buttons to adjust time down to 5 minutes. Once done, cover the vent with a towel and turn it to venting mode to quick release pressure. Contents will be very hot. Use an immersion blender to puree until very smooth. Alternatively use a traditional blender and work in batches to puree the soup. Thin to desired consistency with remaining cup of broth. Add coconut aminos and a few splashes of apple cider vinegar, the vinegar adds acidity that helps balance and brighten the flavors of the soup. Taste and adjust seasoning by adding salt, pepper, or more coconut aminos. Garnish with chives and a drizzle of coconut milk or sour cream.

  2. This can be made on the stovetop in a large soup pot, just sauté over medium heat, and rather than cooking under pressure, simmer for 20 minutes, or until vegetables are softened. Follow instructions above for pureeing and seasoning.
