This is a velvety soup with just a hint of kick. It makes an excellent winter side dish but is a little light to be the center of a meal.

    Add squash, onions, garlic, dill, and chicken broth to pressure cooker. Cook on high pressure for 15 minutes.

    Allow the squash mixture to cool slightly. Add it and remaining ingredient into you blender and blend until smooth.
