2 CUPS sliced leeks
4 garlic cloves, chopped

1 CUP of cauliflower rice (see recipe at askdrernst.com)
2 CUPS of butternut squash, chopped
1/4 CUP dry farm white wine

Set Instant Pot to the “Sauté” function.

Heat oil in the instant pot, add the rinsed leeks and stir for 2 minutes.

Add garlic, sage and rice, stir for 2 minutes.

Add butternut squash, stirring until there is a bit of browning on the bottom of the instant pot.

Add the wine and scrape up the browned bits. Let all the wine cook off, about 2-3 minutes. Add the stock or broth. Scrape up more browned bits. Add the salt, pepper and nutmeg, and stir.
