This soup is another of Heather's recipes it is delicious. I'm not a big fan of squash but I love this soup. It's really quick and easy to make with a big taste. Do not leave out the yogurt it enhances this soup.

Delicious! This soup is rich and healthy and tastes SO good! I bought a 2 pound container of chopped butternut squash at Costco so the only work to do for this was chopping the onion and blending the soup - I used an immersion blender to do that. The dollop of fat free Greek yogurt, freshly grated nutmeg and roasted sunflower seeds (my own addition) at the end just made it perfect. Made for Went To The Market tag game. Thanks Baby Kato! :)

Yes this is an easy and tasty soup that is indeed was enhanced by the Greek yogurt. I made as written with the exception of grating the nutmeg on top instead I stirred it in to the soup as DM will not taste anything she thinks might have nutmeg, so topped with yogurt and a few pumpkin seeds. Will be making again, thanks for the post.

Delicious! The Greek yoghurt worked wonderfully with the natural sweetness of the butternut squash not to mention being healthier than other options like cream.
