Creamy & Spicy Carrot Yam Soup

This recipe is from 'Oh She Glows Every Day' by Angela Liddon (pg. 141). It is so delicious that there is not alot of changes to make except I decided to leave out the cayenne pepper and I increased the amount of broth, carrots and yams by 1 cup each.
The BIG difference with this tasty recipe is I am using my 'Instant Pot' instead of the stove top. This electric pressure cooker/saute pot/soup pot is one of the most useful and handy tools I have ever had in my kitchen. It makes enough soup for 6-8 big bowls of soup.

2  tbsp. coconut oil
2 cups sweet onion
2-3 garlic cloves
1 tbsp. fresh organic ginger
2 tbsp. red curry paste
5 cups vegetable broth ( I made my own                          see the recipeon this blog)
1/4 cup raw almond butter
4 cups peeled and diced carrots - don’t                          worry about the size as you are                            blending the soup before serving
4 cups peeled and diced yams
1 tsp. salt
freshly ground pepper to taste

Using the amazing ‘Instant Pot’:

Tune on the pot to the ‘saute’ setting.  
Melt coconut oil.
Add diced onion, garlic & ginger. Sauté for a few minutes until onions are transparent.
Add curry paste. Continue to sauté to blend in the paste.
Add almond butter to 1 cup of the broth and blend well. Add this mixture to the onions. Stir well.
Add remaining ingredients and stir.
Close up the Instant Pop pressure cooker.
Set the dial to Soup/Broth setting and press start.
After the pot pre-heats it takes 30 minutes and your soup is perfectly done. 
After the lid is off, remove the inside pot from the pressure cooker and place on a hot pad.
Blend until creamy smooth with an immersion blender or in a blender.  
Serve while steaming hot.
