"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."
Serving Size: 1 (255 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"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."
"Everything from Kittencalskitchen is the BEST! I used evaporated milk and Italian sausage, and it is absolutely wonderful! Thanks for another great recipe that I will keep using again and again."
"Here's another five star review! My husband and I LOVED this soup. He liked it so much he wants to serve this on Thanksgiving. To lighten it up, I used fat free half and half and I didn't add any bacon. Just a wonderful soup. Thanks, Kittencal, for yet another winner!"
"Absolutely outstanding! Restaurant worthy recipe. Made exactly as written and the result my new favorite soup!"
"Fantastic soup! My boys and husband were sure they weren't going to like it. They all had seconds. The only thing I did different was to add a little parmesan to the top of everyone's bowl. Delicious!"
"Simple and delicious. You are one of my favorite chefs on here, Kittencal. For next time, I would tweak in two minor ways: I'd add less black pepper and curry, so that the acorn's own taste isn't as overpowered. Thanks."
"This was a good recipe; a different meal from what I usually make. I made a half recipe, which I think will easily serve 4. I subbed skim milk for the cream and left out celery and bacon since I didn't have it. Great with some toasted bread!"
"This is so good!! Even my meat-and-potatoes husband loved it : ) I didn't add the bouillon granules, dill or bacon, and it was still delicious. Thanks for posting it!"
"I made this for Thanksgiving last year and it was the hit of the party. I'm already getting requests to make it again this year. Kitten, I'm finding so many recipes i've made from this site have come from you. Thanks."
"I had a half acorn squash, so halved the recipe.I used veggie broth and bacon bits. Thanks Kitten!"
"well, here is another recipe without enough stars to give it! We had this tonite and it was so good. I didn't puree it and it was so good. I used real bacon bits that you buy in the store instead of bacon. YUMMMy, yummy."
"Very good, heart-warming soup! I lightened it up a bit by subbing half & half and milk for the cream, and left out the dill because I don't usually care for it. I love Kittencal's recipes!"
"absolutely delicious. A little time consuming but worth it."
"This soup was the hit of our family Thanksgiving dinner."
"I was low on the Acorn Squash so I substituted some fresh stemed Cauliflower.I used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of whipping cream and added another tbl. of flour to thicken.I blended,but left a few crumbles of the Cauliflower for texture.It was wonderful!!"
"Easy and delicious! I used half-and-half cream, and it was still deliciously creamy. The crumbled bacon garnish was a very nice addition."
