“This is a thick, rich soup with tons of flavor. Something I whipped up off the top of my head, with things I had on hand. Super easy, quick, and a great way to use squash. An instant hit at my house.” - by Maplebird
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Melt the butter in a large pot, and cook the onion, celery, carrot, potatoes, and squash 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Pour in enough of the chicken stock to cover vegetables. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover pot, and simmer 40 minutes, or until all vegetables are tender.
- Transfer the soup to a blender, and blend until smooth. Return to pot, and mix in any remaining stock to attain desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper.

The first time, I replaced the potatoes with sweet potatoes and added some garlic and a pinch of curry powder. It was absolutely delicious and very hearty served with a big dollop of sour cream (the sour cream is a MUST).

The flesh scoops out easily with a spoon. No cutting or dicing required."
"This recipe is very, very bland.. however it is salvagable. Here's what you do: 1- use only one potato, if you use two it takes away from the squash. 2- add 1/2 tsp cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg. 3- a..."

I personally found the recipe tasted better with a little bit of parmesan cheese and some italian seasonings. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and some crumbled bacon. I strongly recommend making these changes or others, otherwise this recipe is WAY too bland. "
