"Run, don't walk, to buy the ingredients to make this! This is the BEST soup I've found on this site! I used sweet potato, instead of butternut squash and used a whole can of LITE coconut milk, which..." See more reduced the calorie count substantially. As a result, I also upped the amount of water by adding another 1 to 1 1/2 cups and adjusted the amounts of tomato paste, curry, black pepper, and cayenne. Oh, and lastly, since I needed to use them up, I sauteed some portabello mushrooms and threw them in as the soup cooked. WOW! So glad I did, since they were a great addition - I'll add them to the ingredient list when I make this again, and I will definitely make this again. (Did I mention I LOVE this soup?!) I didn't quite understand the reviewer who claimed they had to halve the cayenne pepper amount and it was still too hot. Huh? It only called for a pinch. Anyway, THANKS a MILLION for this recipe!"
"I'd give this recipe a 3 as written and a 5 with my changes. I used 3 cups of chicken stock in place of the 2 cups of water, as I found it to be too thickonce cooked. I also used about 3/4 can of coco..." See morenut milk, 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/8 tsp of cayenne and 1/8 cup of fish sauce in addition to the other ingredients. I didn't have any squash on hand, so I used sweet potatoe instead, which I prefer anyway. In the end this turned out perfectly. My 8 yo dd asked for seconds and dh requested that we serve it at our next dinner party. I'd call it a hit!!"
"I generally do not rate a recipe I do not follow completely. I'm reviewing because this recipe seems so versatile. If you do not have everything in your pantry, make this soup anyway! This has a wo..." See morenderful flavor and I was very apprehensive as I did not have coconut milk. I substituted Soy Milk and Vegetable broth instead of water. I also omited fenugreek seasoning as I'm not familiar with this spice. The soup had a great flavor without any salt. I added mushrooms as other reviewers suggested and I think the squash adds a lot to this dish. Will use this recipe often. Thanks for the post!"
