    Delicious! Didn’t have an immersion blender so I used my hand mixer. Made for a little bit of a chunky soup, but a fine mesh sieve took care of that!

    My daughters response - this is the best butternut squash soup I've ever had. Enough said
    I didn’t have something to blend it on hand so I used a whisk. But otherwise the soup was tasty. I liked it and will probably make it again.

    Was super easy to make, smelled AMAZING while cooking, and tasted even better when it was done
    Not the best I’ve had. It needed to be thicker with more kick..

    Absolutely fantastic! It's a little spicy, maybe because of the bell pepper. My wife and I love it!

    Best butternut squash soup I have ever made! I had butternut squash soup served at my wedding and this was by far better than that venue's soup recipe! I added 1 tsp extra of sugar and it made it just right! I microwaved the butternut squash for 4 mins, to make it easier to peel and cut safely into cubes.
