Our family loves this recipe! Tonight I skipped the bacon for the first time and overcooked (to the point of being nearly carmelized) the onions, carrots, celery and apple. It was unanimously the best batch yet! We have some new diet limitations so had to skip the dairy this time, but it was not missed a bit. The first two times I made it exactly as written and it was excellent that way as well.
We make this at least once a week--and my husband requests it more often than that! We make it very thick, so it's almost more of a puree. Since we're working on healthier eating, we eliminate the bacon and replace the whipping cream with reduced fat sour cream. With a hearty multi-grain roll, this is a perfect fall lunch or dinner for us! Also, it smells SO delicious as it simmers!
Wow, this is FANTASTIC! I roasted the Squash first at 450 for 45 minutes prior to adding to the mix, and blending. I also added some chopped green onions to the sour cream and bacon garnish. Beautiful, and oh my gosh, so flavorful! Served with some sliced crusty bread. Perfect Fall Dish!
I made a few changes to this recipe which seemed to taste just fine. I didn't want to add the honey or nutmeg, and substituted the whipping cream for 1/2 cup of coconut milk. I also added some curry powder for some added favour. Tasted great!
Absolutely love this soup. I went ahead and substituted full fat Coconut milk in place of the cream and couldn't tell the difference at all. My family practically fights over this soup every time I make it. In place of the cheese garnish I simply process a bit of pine nuts and sprinkle them on top.
Very intense and balanced flavors. Great recipe, thank you!
OMG I made this to get rid of some left over baked squash. It was easy to make and the taste I couldn`t think of a better soup to make with squash. You know I may to have it with dinner today in stead of freezing it. LOL
Great recipe for novice chef. I made quite a few substitutions to add a bit of kick. Tried rhubarb instead of celery and added in a chopped up hatch chili pepper. Got rave reviews. Thanks for the great recipe
This has a delicious blend of flavors. The large variety of vegetables and fruits makes it very healthy.I will definitely make again. I am considering making a large batch and canning it (minus the dairy products). The dairy can be added at the time of reheating.
Delicious! Best soup recipe I've ever found. This is now in my winter rotation. Thanks for posting!!
