This cozy winter soup includes squash, bell pepper, carrots and spinach.
Prep Time 30 mins
Cook Time 1 hr
Servings 4 servings


  • Pressure Cooker


  • 5 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • ¼ cup dairy free butter
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 butternut squash small to medium
  • 1 orange or yellow bell pepper
  • 2 carrots medium
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ½ tsp basil
  • ¼ tsp chili powder


  • If using a Ninja or similar combination pressure cooker / air fryer, melt the butter on the sear setting. Otherwise, do this in a large pot on the stovetop.
  • Add garlic to butter and cook until soft. Whisk the tomato paste into the water.
  • Whisk in the flour to create a paste, then whisk in the tomato paste water until well combined.
  • Add the chopped squash, bell pepper, carrots and spinach. Stir to combine.
  • Add turmeric, basil and chili powder. Mix.
  • If using a Ninja or something similar, switch to pressure cook, attach pressure lid, and cook on high for 1 hour and release pressure (allowing it to release on it's on is fine too). If cooking on the stove top, cook on medium heat for two hours.
  • Transfer soup to a large bowl and using an immersion blender, blend the soup to your preferred thickness.
    *Using an immersion blender directly in your pot or pressure cooker liner can scratch and damage it.


This recipe can be made in a combination pressure cooker / air fryer, a slow cooker or on the stove top!
