This is a good and healthy soup. I cut the butternut squash in half, drizzled olive oil on it, and sprinkled it with dried rosemary. Then, I roasted it at 375 deg. until it was tender. This makes it easier to peel. After cooking all the ingredients until soft, I pureed the soup with my immersion blender. Thank you for this healthy recipe.

This soup is awesome and full of flavor, which I wouldn't have expected with so few ingredients..and without the Rosemary, because I didn't have any...I will make this again! Was thrown by the metrics but with a few conversions I was able to get it.
