Thanksgiving is just a little more than a week away, and many people will be cooking winter squash for the holiday. But why take up an extra burner on the stove? Use your instant pot, and get the job done quickly and efficiently! Also a great idea for those busy week day evenings!
There are several ways to cook winter squash in a pressure cooker or instant pot. You can leave it whole or halve it, which might work well for spaghetti squash, delicata or acorn squash. Or you can cube it, which might work better for butternut, jarrahdale, sweat meat or blue hubbard.
See our featured post down below for more info on how to cook a halved squash. Increase the time to 25 minutes for a whole squash, and let it naturally release for at least 10 minutes.
For cubed squash, peel and seed the squash or pumpkin, cut into 1″ cubes, add to pressure cooker with 1 cup of water. Cook on high pressure for 3 minutes if you want them to hold their shape or for 4 minutes if you plan to mash them or want them softer. Than do a quick release.
Also, be sure to check out some other helpful posts I have on winter squash:
