This was good, I love the fall/winter pumpkin and squash dishes that are made this time of year
I used applesauce and threw in some plain soy milk. I pre-roasted the squash (not long enough though, it was still difficult to cut) and I added some seasonings at the end (cumin, ginger, allspice, nutmeg)
Will try this with pears next time, thanks for the recipe


This was SO good.  I roasted the main ingredients, only added half the broth, and threw it all in my food processor.  I ate the whole batch myself (in separate sittings, of course!).  Thanks a bunch!


YUM!  I cracked into my first butternut squash tonight and made this delicious z00p. I halved the recipe and added a few pinches of cinnamon, a pinch of clove, and about 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. Also, I whizzed the whole thing in the blender before I served it (with the lid off-kilter, of course!) to get the smooth consistency I like in a squash soup.



This soup is great and I will be making it again and adding it to my favorite recipes. However, I also modified it a bit when I prepared it. I cooked the chopped butternut squash, apples, garlic, and broth with a little more salt overnight in a slow cooker on low. When the squash and apples were adequately "mushy", I blended it using my hand-blender in the crock pot. For additional seasonings, I added coriander and cumin. Mmmmm, was it ever good.


This was a very tasty soup. Like most people, I made some modifications...I used acorn squash instead of butternut squash, and I roasted the garlic, squash, and apples at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes beforehand. I like thicker soup, so I only used 2 cups of broth, and I added about 1/2 cup of quinoa. I also used just a dash each of cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg. I'm sure it would be much more satisfying in october than in may, but it's still a delicious soup.


Using the suggestion of user "karmadust" I added a bit of brown sugar to sweeten it a bit. Then I was still thinking - it needs something more - like some curry spices or something - but user "Saishoku" tried it and said to just stick with brown sugar, s+p, but to me it still lacks something so I'd go with user "milk%2Ais%2Abad" and say that it would make a good base for adding your own stuff to - I was thinking maybe broccoli or potato cubes - I think maybe less water might help b/c I like my soup quite thick... anyway, if it wasn't for my Sunflower & Flax seed Bread this meal would have sucked.... sorry - just my opinion - and as one can see from the other comments - no one really agrees with me anyway.  :-[


This soup is WAY too sweet, so I can see why it's popular, especially with small children. It's more like some kind of dessert than a soup.


Yum!  Great soup for a miserable rainy day like today!

As suggested by others I roasted the squash first which was much easier than peeling it first.  I also added some Tabasco for a little heat.  I'd like to try making it again with some ginger or chopped hazelnuts. 


this may very well be the best soup i've ever had.  i love thick, creamy, smooth soup.  i also pre-roasted my squash, and added ground ginger, then took my vegetable peeler and tossed in about 10 good-sized strips of fresh ginger.  combined with the apples, it created a very nice ctirus-y flavor.  i cooked up a cup of brown rice to go with it, but didn't even mix it in, it was so good by itself!  big pat on the back for such a wondrous creation!  here's a question:  it's that time of year in my garden; think this recipe would work as well with pumpkin?  let me know if anyone finds out before i do.


Mmm, boy, was this good!  I have a habit of mixing my squash with applesauce, but never would have dreamed of combining the two flavours in a soup. 

I roasted the squash first with a smidge of vegan butter and brown sugar, so it gave it a little extra sweetness.  Very very tasty!
