I found this soup to be delightful and easy as pie. I too confess to using uncooked rice, (the recipe wasn't clear) but the end result left me wondering if it was a mistake at all. After pureeing, it was like silk. I thoroughy enjoyed evry bite. Oh, and I used half chicken and half vegetable stock.

Nice soup that virtually screams fall! I've had butternut-apple soup before, but I chose this one because of the curry. I was amazed at how nicely this thickened up. The apples give it a little sweetness and depending on what curry powder you use, there's a bit of heat too. I used fresh grated ginger (didn't measure, but it was probably around a tablespoon) and a hand/stick blender to puree it. Thank you!

Wonderful soup. My squash weighed in at about 2.25 pounds after peeling and seeding, so rather than cutting into another one, I scaled the recipe accordingly. I used minced fresh ginger, Granny Smith apples, and jasmine rice. Really enjoyed it--thanks for posting!

This was good but it was a lot of work for the end result. It turned out really thick and it almost didn't feel like we were eating soup. I used the left overs as the sauce to make a chicken curry dish the next night and enjoyed this recipe for that use much better (Split chicken breasts covered in sauce covered in the oven on 350 for 45 min).

My room-mates and I really liked this soup- though I did change a few things. One thing I know I messed up on- I used uncooked rice since it didn't really specify. I also added carrots (they needed to be used) and didn't have onoins or celery. Still good tho!

WOW, I cheated a little for the rice I used a pack I had in the pantry TILDA BUTTERNUT SQUASH & BROWN BASMATI RICE. I had a mix of apples sweet and green so I simply lumped them as apples and measured out the amount needed - blended it in my Nutra Bullet and magic smooth soup with the most wonderful flavor. This recipe is a keeper and is nice both hot or cold with a big dob of light sour cream or Greek Yoghurt, I also sprinkled the top with some chopped cashews when serving.
