      This is excellent! I more or less doubled the recipe, using a whole butternut squash. I had a ton of pears to use up, which is sort of how I found this one to begin with. I used my lemon curry powder, which is a bit lighter in flavor. Perfect. Used vegetable buillion, making this vegan. Double bonus! Made about 8 cups (8 servings for me). Froze most. Thanks! Great recipe.
