Absolutely delicious! I added a pinch of curry powder to warm it up just a bit, and it took it over the edge to phenomenal. Now I am on the hunt for more butternut squash ....
I was skeptical about a thick, rich soup taking only 20 minutes to simmer but pleasantly surprised at the outcome. I did nuke the squash in the microwave for 10 minutes first, as I don't have the patience to work with the tough butternut peels. I also added a few dashes of ginger (as others here have recommended) and some Lawry's pepper (my personal favorite - love a little extra pepper!). Overall, this recipe was super easy and full of flavor. I served with a few garlic/butter croutons and some shredded parmesan cheese. It's a keeper! :o)
Very easy to make and so simple with fantastic results. It's got a mild flavor that is easy to spice up if you want. First time making anything using butternut squash and was very happy with the results!
Very yummy! This is the first soup recipe that has had the exactly perfect amount of salt. Instead of the parmesan garnish, I stir in a little half and half before serving. Also, the second time I made this I roasted the squash in the oven then scooped it right into the pot - it worked beautifully, and saved me the step of peeling and cubing (I made a triple batch, so it was definitely worth it)
Holy WOW! YUMMY YUMMY!! I made this soup for a family gathering and it was such a hit! This soup is easy and very delicious. The things I did a bit different were, I used 1 1/2 tbs of butter instead of 1 teaspoon of olive oil and vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. I like to start soups like this with some yummy butter and we have a vegetarian in the family, so no chicken broth... :o)
Fantastic! This was super easy to make. I peeled and cubed the squash ahead of time and put it in a baggie in the fridge. Then it only took about 25 minutes to cook and puree. I thought I had a spare carton of Swanson's chicken broth in the pantry but it turned out to vegetable broth! So I ended up using 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth and 1 1/2 cups of vegetable broth. The flavor was fabulous! Even my picky husband liked it. This is a wonderful, light and healthy treat. I split the finished product into 4 bowls (rather than 6 servings) and calculated WW points to be 2 per serving which included the parmesan garnish! Delicious, nutritious and easy to make. Who could ask for anything more?
Very good. I was a little worried when it was cooking, but thought it was okay when it was done. BUT, I ate it for lunch the next two days and it was definitely better!
