Top Review by CannB1

I had some carrots too old to be used in a salad and found butternut squash I forgot I had tossed into the freezer. Time for soup! I was intrigued by the Chinese 5 spice used in this recipe so decided to try it. This is delicious!!! My family nearly licked the pot clean. I have added it to the family cookbook. Thank you so much. (I used 3 cups chicken stock, 3 cups vegetable stock, and the remainder of a bottle of riesling. If you don't have an immersion blender, this is why you should invest in one. Much easier than using a food processor.)
