Ginger Butternut Squash Soup

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

This soup takes just 20 minutes from start to finish! I love my instant pot! This soup is perfect for this time of year and the ginger added boosts the health benefits of this soup.

You can add variety to this recipe up by varying what you use to garnish the soup. The recipe calls for toasted pumpkin or squash sees but you could use Parmesan cheese, croutons, or sunflower seeds.

This recipe was adapted from Laura Pazzaglia from


  • 2 cups butternut squash
  • 1 sprig sage
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 1 inch of fresh ginger
