    Added a couple of potatoes to thicken it a little and a little extra thyme. Delicious and easy recipe. Made it a few times already.

    Very good! Made exactly from recipe. Next time may back off all the chicken broth a little as I like my soup a bit thicker.

    I made the red curry version. It was out of this world! Flavorful and not sweet. I have some picky eaters and they all loved it. Will make it again next week.

    It turned out okay, but the sweetness was overpowering for me. I added lemon juice and it is what the recipe needed to be more savory.

    This soup is so easy to prepare on a chilly weeknight! Used Trader Joe’s cubed butternut squash and Mirepoix diced vegetables so prep time was less than 10 minutes! While soup was simmering I prepared a batch of Red Lobster cheddar biscuits. Family loved this soup seasoned per the recipe, but adding a bit of hot sauce gives it an extra kick if you’re into spicy. Very healthy and low calorie as well.

    Very good, very easy. I thought it was a little silly to do just ONE carrot and stick of celery. One large butternut squash may produce 4-6cups once cubed, soI have been using ~4 carrots and ~3 sticks of celery. Don’t skip the chopped thyme!! That really makes a big difference. Top with goat cheese and toasted pine nuts.

    I love this soup! I was a big fan of the ultra heavy, creamy butternut squash soup since that’s the only type I had previously had, but this one was perfect! It felt light and didn’t leave me feeling stuffed. It was the perfect blend of flavor and left me feeling guilt free. I cannot wait to make it again.

    I read the reviews before I made it, so I decided to add chopped, fresh ginger. I didn’t have red curry paste so I just used 1 tsp. curry powder that my nephew brought me from Thailand. I roasted the squash until the skin peeled off and then cubed it for the recipe. I followed the rest of the main recipe, but substituted 1/2 cup coconut milk and 1/2 heavy cream for 1 of the 4 cups of chicken broth. It made a rich, creamy and flavorful soup. It was a hit! I will definitely be making this again!

    It makes it so much easier to boil the squash whole in water until it is soft. Then peel and chop

    Creamy! Perfect for this fall rainy day!
    Loved it super flovory and great for the holidays , I added garlic for a boost of flavour , After all the hard part was peeling off the squash it’s really hard so I would recommend buying it already cut up for you

    I thought this soup turned out bland and probably won’t make it again. I added extra thyme and salt
    Very easy and tasty!

    very nice ! based on the comments i left out pepper and added extra carrots and celery. also before i blended it i removed some liquid so that it would make it thicker when blended.

    It is peppery and not a very creamy soup - still tasty and warming.
