Halloween Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

Fall in love with this simple butternut squash soup recipe from Chandni Patel of Chand’s Kitchen. It’s flavorful, cozy comfort food in a bowl! It takes 30 minutes to make and you only need seven ingredients, plus a few spices and an electric pressure cooker. Make it spooky for Halloween by creating a spider web design at the top. Simply put coconut milk in a squeeze bottle and draw circles at the top of the soup. Then use a toothpick to drag out the web starting from the center to the outer edge of the bowl. Sprinkle some black pepper in the middle and you’ve got an eerie-sistible soup that’s perfect for the season!
