Very tasty! I didn't need to push through a sieve as my immersion blender was very thorough. I love this soup!

This soup is delicious and easy to make, and so healthy. I found mirin at an asian grocery store but you can also find recipes for a substitute online using sake. I used Sriracha for the hot sauce. I did not find it necessary to strain the soup after running it through the blender, it was already smooth. I used plain greek yogurt to top it off as I think greek yogurt adds more body and flavor than regular yogurt. So good!.

I make a lot of squash soup, but this was by far the best! I did make a few changes based upon what we had in the house: No mirin, so I used sherry. No OJ or chili sauce either. Otherwise, I followed it as written. I typically add ginger, but I think the celery and curry powder were what made a good soup a fantastic soup! I made it for my husband and his family and all loved it. Thank you for sharing!
