Instant Pot Butternut Squash

Butternut squash is one of the winter squash that is harvested at full maturity and is eaten cooked. This squash has the distinction of having a subtle taste of hazelnut which is very appreciated.

Butternut squash is delicious all year round, but especially in the fall when it is freshly picked.

For this recipe I used a metal steamer basket, but feel free to use any Instant Pot steamer basket you have.
