My husband loves this soup served with muffins or corn scones. It came from the "Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home" cookbook.

Very good and easy to make ( i used my mandolin slicer for the veggies and did not peel them). I admitted the potatoes to the kids, but not the squash or the carrot- and used my hand blender to smooth it out. The soup doesn't come out velvet smooth- but that's ok- it tastes good!
