  • Total Time25 min


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic peeled and smashed
  • 1 large butternut squash

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin spice

Use the Instant Pot’s sauté function to sauté the onion until it starts to soften. Then stir in the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds. Press the cancel button to turn off the Instant Pot.


Add the rest of the ingredients in and stir.


Pressure cook 10 minutes at high pressure, followed by a 10 minute natural release.


You can use an immersion blender to puree the soup right in the pot. I use my stainless steel Vitamix, and it’s great!


Garnish with cinnamon, pumpkin seeds, & nuts of choice. Enjoy!

She resorted to holistic approaches for healing to reverse some of her own health problems, and to help her mom battle cancer. She is a graduate of Babson College where she researched and wrote a thesis that supports a more integrative treatment approach, and is a strong advocate of incorporating complementary therapies into conventional treatment methods. As she discovered the healing powers of food as medicine, both through her own experience as well as in her research, she developed a desire to share what she learned with others. So, she started WellnStrong. She believes in a holistic approach to wellness that addresses the root causes of illness, not just the suppression of symptoms.
