    Really yummy... I added a sweet potato and a little unsweetened almond milk to loosen it a bit. Topped with asparagus and marsala mushrooms.

    This was super easy to make and delicious. It’s great by itself. I added some cinnamon and turmeric for my taste but the recipe as is tastes great. It has a perfect thick consistency and the ginger gives it the perfect amount of texture.

    Delicious and extremely easy to make! Couldn’t believe that the actual 3 ingredients you need to make the soup (2 of the 5 ingredients are for garnish) can make the soup so tasty!

    I added more salt but it was still overly sweet to me. I added more ginger as a garnish as well

    It was delicious! i noticed some people saying it was not flavorful enough, so i roasted garlic while i did the squash. i added more ginger, used a whole can of coconut milk and a fair amount of veggie stock. i added some paprika and extra mushrooms. i also added sriracha to mine, as i like spicy. my 3 yo and 51 yo husband loved it. i served it with lime chili shrimp. i will be making this again!

    I’ve made it twice. The first time I made it, I followed the directions to the letter and it was amazing. The second time I used regular heavy cream and ginger powder. Meh. Not bad but the coconut milk and fresh ginger root make this soup special.

    Beautiful base. However, there is a reason why salt and pepper come into play in most every dish. My palate is demanding so it was fun to play around with some tumeric and red pepper for heat!
    It’s good, just needs some more flavor. Going to try again and add some lemongrass and cilantro when we blend it.

    This was terrible. The coconut milk and butternut squash together was not good.

    It was easy to make and pretty good, I should have sautéed more mushrooms up, because that was the bulk of the flavor for mine.

    Loved the texture of this soup. I used my hand blender. Sautéed mushrooms were delicious and the cilantro was a good topping! Will definitely make again!

    recipe was mostly great, though I needed more coconut milk than was called for. I added an extra half cup and I might even add more. I also highly recommend adding some smoked paprika if you're into that. The caramelized mushrooms and cilantro topping is amazing with the soup.
