    This was an excellent bisque and very easy to put together. Only problem was that I didn't make enough for seconds. The hint of nutmeg made the difference - don't forget it.

    This is a wonderful fall soup! The flavors gently blend together to create a real treat. I only used 10 ounces of chicken broth because that's all I had. Also, I did not have an onion on hand so I substituted 1-1/4 teaspoons of onion powder. I also use Silk plain soy milk as I am allergic to regular milk. Despite all my changes it still came out wonderfully! Next time I'll use a real onion!

    This was really delicious. I used extra pepper and added a dash of cayenne. Oh, I also upped the garlic to three cloves. Very delicious soup. Creamy and comforting. Thanks!

    Wow, easy and quick. Kids couldn't get enough of it. Next time I need to make more.

    Simple & tasty. I'm not a big winter squash fan and my husband was a bit scared of the squash "bisque" idea. But this soup simply works. You'll be impressed with the flavor and the simplicity.

    I topped the soup with some flaky sea salt, fresh cracked black pepper, and a sprinkling of cilantro.

    I used less margarine and vegetable stock instead of chicken and this turned out to be a mild and tasty bisque. Since I've never made one before, I was a little confused about step 2 (I assumed the squash were drained but it doesn't specify) Other than that, and the fact that I almost burnt my hands off on the blender trying to puree it all in one batch, this was a tasty recipe.


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
