This did not need the whipping cream. Was ok. Will make again with out the cream or with coconut milk instead. UPDATE: made this with the coconut milk, it was better.
ratherbeswimmin', what a swimmingly great recipe only one change instead of chicken broth, I used apple cider instead. Absolutely yummy, I will make again but will definitely add more garlic to the baking process, we topped the soup with Greek thick yogurt and served with San Francisco Sour Dough Bread!
This was good, but not excellent. I doubt I'll make it again, as my 3yo & 5yo daughters did not like it. :( I wanted to love it, as this recipe came highly recommended by a friend, but it wasn't for us.
Great recipe but I cheated. I already had steamed my squash in my table top steamer before I found this recipe. I used chicken stock, omitted the onion just because I didn't have time to do it, and omitted the oil and used a 1/4 cup of half n half because that's what I had. I tasted it pre half n half and it was lacking. I also rationalized that not having the fat would not keep me full for long on a watery soup. The thyme took this soup to a whole nother level. This recipe is great because it is easy to customize.
Nice basic recipe, but needed a few tweeks. I omitted the cream, then added about 1/2 tsp curry powded, 1 tsp fresh ginger, and 2 Tbs Dark brown sugar while the soup was on the stove top. Came out wonderfully flavorful, and everything complimented each other without a single overwhelming ingredient. Thank you!
I really liked this recipe made it for the first time tonight. Will definitely make again - and next time it may warrant 5 stars... A few words for those who are making it for the first time: no matter how much you LOVE roasted garlic -- use a MED - SMALL head of garlic -- not the biggest in your pantry (like I did). I had trouble peeling the squash after roasting so I figured I didn't roast long enough. I'll roast the whole 2 hours next time... I also used 2% milk instead of cream and don't think I missed a thing except a couple of calories... also used my immersion blender and it worked like a charm. All in all - a wonderful soup even if I would have had to title mine Roasted Garlic and Butternut Squash soup.... ! :)
Excellent! I used canned whole milk instead of the cream on the third time I prepared it, and still wonderful.
WOW, excellent. I did only 2 tablespoons of oil and 1 spoon of thyme.
Yummy soup. A bit of work, but so worth it! The only thing I omitted was the cream because I found the consistency to be thick enough without it.Thanks for sharing.
Lovely soup, very easy to put together with outstanding flavor.
