I added a zest of a lemon, small sweet onion and garlic that I sautéed before adding the squash and turmeric. Amazing!

Good, but there is a little something missing

Very creamy, and simple to make

I love the roasting method and coconut milk in this recipe, but I improvise with spices... I add in chicken stock, garlic, onion, or whatever else I might fancy because I find using just the ingredients suggested is too bland.

Not my fave. Too funky!

This was delicious! I put a pinch of cayenne along with the smoked paprika and a bit of celery. Easy, fast and sooo good for you. Make it, you won’t regret!

Easy and delicious! I added a 1/2 cup of cinnamon applesauce and 1/4 tsp of cardamom

Lovely, simple flavors. Easy to make

I love the suggestion of roasting the butternut squash in 2 halves instead of chopping it first. However, following the recipe just made puréed butternut squash. I had to add broth, garlic, pumpkin spice, nutmeg, and cinnamon to make it taste good!

I left my soup relatively chunky and added many more spices (including cinnamon-very good choice) and tomato. Soup-er good fall meal

Came out great. I topped mine with roasted garlic. Making it again today but will try freezing my leftovers to see how they hold up.

Easy as can be - basically all you need to do (and account the most time for) is roast the butternut squash. That's 95% of the work, the rest is just blending, adding ginger and coconut milk - done. I really enjoyed this recipe and will definitely make it again.

This is great soup. I've made it twice now and it was still just as great & simple as the first time around. I will make it again and again.😊

It's very good, but could use more flavor.
