This may be a stupid question, but do we have to peel the squash first before cooking it in the IP? The way I read this recipe, we can put it in whole, but then there’s no mention of peeling. Can this be clarified? Thank you!.
I had the same question, and came to the conclusion that peeling was the only thing that made sense. The squash was a little hot coming out of the Instant Pot so I ended up using a knife more than a peeler, and losing a little squash but not much. The soup was delicious! I had to make a few changes because of what I had on hand, and it worked out wonderfully. I ended up using a little less non-dairy milk (3 cups) and unsweetened vanilla coconut milk instead of almond milk. I worried about the vanilla but the taste was wonderful. I used half vegetable broth and half water, and less onions. Otherwise followed the recipe and it was fabulous!
