Simple Butternut Squash Soup



I love soup and eating soup in the fall is my favorite thing to do.  So when we got a “cool” front this week I had to make this amazing recipe.   It is simple but honestly amazing and easily will become a household favorite.  This should make enough for 4-5 people. I hope this Simple Butternut Squash Soup finds you warmness in your belly.


  • 8 cups chopped butternut squash
  • 1½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon  kosher salt
  • 8 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, diced up
  • 8 cup vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1 cup of vanilla Yogurt
  • ¼ t cayenne pepper (optional) I use when I have a cold to help kick the cold


  • I first cut up my squash into diced squares.  
  • First I placed the oil in the Instant Pot with my oil, onion and garlic, till soft then 
  • Placed the squash into the Instant pot and rest of the spices with half of the chicken broth
  • Turned my Instant Pot on for 12 minutes.
  • After the squash was done I put in the chicken broth and let cook on simmer for 30 minutes or you can pressure for 13 if you want faster.
  • Last before we ate I added in the yogurt and then served with a grilled cheese.
