    ratherbeswimmin', what a swimmingly great recipe only one change instead of chicken broth, I used apple cider instead. Absolutely yummy, I will make again but will definitely add more garlic to the baking process, we topped the soup with Greek thick yogurt and served with San Francisco Sour Dough Bread!

    This was good, but not excellent. I doubt I'll make it again, as my 3yo & 5yo daughters did not like it. :( I wanted to love it, as this recipe came highly recommended by a friend, but it wasn't for us.

    Great recipe but I cheated. I already had steamed my squash in my table top steamer before I found this recipe. I used chicken stock, omitted the onion just because I didn't have time to do it, and omitted the oil and used a 1/4 cup of half n half because that's what I had. I tasted it pre half n half and it was lacking. I also rationalized that not having the fat would not keep me full for long on a watery soup. The thyme took this soup to a whole nother level. This recipe is great because it is easy to customize.

    This did not need the whipping cream. Was ok. Will make again with out the cream or with coconut milk instead. UPDATE: made this with the coconut milk, it was better.
