it is alright. Hopefully, the flavors meld more after a few days.

I've made it multiple times, and it's best a day later.

Delicious! I used sweet potatoes instead of squash
Very good! I didn’t have butternut squash or a bay leaf. But I ended up adding roasted cauliflower and roasted broccoli, as well as some potatoes (pre boiled). I also used canned fire roasted tomato instead of roasting my own. As for spices, I added some paprika and chili powder. Super good, definitely going to make it again.

Delicious and simple to make. My children like it too.I added ground Chicken Italian sausage to it for more protein.

Delicious soup!!! As the fall/winter season approaches it will become a staple in my family's dinner.

Delicious! Such a hearty, wholesome stew. I can't wait to make this again. I had no butternut squash on hand and used sweet potatoes instead. I probably tripled the quantity of root vegetables that the recipe called for. I can't wait to try this with different vegetables. I only let the kale cook in the soup for a couple of minutes after the stove was off, I don't like it to get too wilted. I packed it the next day with a side of rice for a filling lunch.

Agree - takes time to make and worth it. Best soup base I've made. Will make it again and have recommended it to family and friends. May try the soup base and using other veggies.

Took a long time to make, but well worth it in the end. Didn't end up with as much liquid as I thought it would, but enjoyed nonetheless as a stew. Very hearty! Love the healthy ingredients too.
