As Lynne explains in the notes accompanying this recipe, cooking this Butternut Squash Soup in a large sauté pan saves time and intensifies the flavours; and “browning the onions supplies the bold foundation you need with sweet ingredients like squash”. A really delicious soup, I have made several times and have always enjoyed, as have family members and friends whom I’ve served it to. I have always made this soup exactly to the recipe (I wasn’t even tempted to add more garlic as I do with so many recipes!) because Lynne’s recipes are always so good and I trust them totally. I’ll be interested to know what changes Zaar chefs will make. I have posted this recipe here - together with Lynne’s fabulous tips – exactly as I received it in "The Splendid Table” newsletter.
