  • 1 large butternut squash
  • 6 cups water or vegetable broth
  • 1 tbsp vegetable base (if using water for liquid)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 small turmeric knob, washed and brushed
  • 4 cloves garlic,
  • 1 small white onion
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg* optional


  • Peel the butternut squash and cut into chunks
  • In a large pot add all the ingredients. Cook for 20 minutes or until the butternut squash is fork tender.
  • When done transfer the solids into a blender cup and only about 3/4 to 1 cup of broth to start. Blend until smooth. If needed add more of the broth. Reserve the remaining broth for another recipe (like rice, stews and soup!)
  • Serve butternut squash turmeric soup hot with crunchy topping such as nuts and granola 


  • Add all ingredients to the instant pot. Cook on high pressure for 5 minutes then allow NPR. When done, use a immersion blender to make it creamy and smooth or transfer to a blender cup and blend until creamy and smooth.
