This soup was SO good. I am recently allergic to onion and garlic and have been convinced I couldn't find a good soup without those ingredients. Needless to say, I left them out of this recipe and it was still amazing! I did saute some chopped celery in the first step instead. I didn't have any thyme so I just left it out. I toasted the squash seeds with some olive oil and salt and garnished the soup with them. It was perfect. I didn't think my husband would like it, but he had 2 bowls!
Delicious!! This is definitely restaurant quality soup! Made written and would not change a thing. Was cream with such wonderful flavors from the apple, rosemary, squash and sweet potato, what a winning combo. Will make again. Thanks so very much for the post.
