This is a delicious thick creamy rich soup with a lovely yellow colour, perfect for those cool fall and cold winter nights. You can adjust the dill, cayenne and curry to taste and this recipe can easily be doubled.

This was SO good. A neighbor gave me 5 acorn squash. I used them all and I think I had 6 cups of squash. I doubled everything except for the dill weed (wasn't sure I was going to like that), bouillon (thought I would have enough salt), I doubled the celery, and I used lowfat yogurt. Fantastic. Also I calculated the calories on spark people's recipe calculator site. As I made it, I think it was 78 calories with 2.5 g fat for 1/2 cup serving. (no bacon and croutons) Hope that helps someone.
1/2012 I make this recipe a lot--I love it. Today I made it with butternut squash and evaporated milk--YUM!!!

Another 5-star from kittencal. Used low-fat yogurt instead of cream, increased curry to 1/2t and found a repeater. Great choice for the first storm of the winter season.

This was just lovely. I wouldn't have thought of dill with cayenne, but it was delicious. I may try to lighten it up next time with fat free sour cream in place of the cream. I used a Krenshaw squash since I had one from the garden.
