    veganfeline's Note:

    This is one of my favorite soups. It can easily be vegan-ized by substituting the cream with plain soy milk. The original recipe is from the book "1000 Vegetarian Recipes from Around the World"

      Delicious and simple. Used one homegrown acorn squash and 2 medium sweet potatoes.

      Only changes I made were no shallots, and evaporated milk instead of cream.

      I used home grown acorn squash to make this soup. It was absolutely delicious. It was a bit sweet. Perhaps the soup was sweet because I used in-season vegetables. Great with garlic bread! Though I'm concerned the soup might be a little too fatty.

      As wonderful as the ingredients sounded to me, this just didn't do anything for me. I associate acorn squash & sweet potatoes with sweetness, so I think I was expecting a sweet soup....which this definitely was not. Very strong shallot flavor which just didn't work with the sweet potatoes and squash for me. Thanks for sharing!
