Butternut Squash Soup

Cookbook creator says: LOVED IT! Made at BJ's, put pepper in with onion, substitute olive oil for margarine, chicken broth for water, and think putting the brown sugar, vinegar, and dill before puree will give the flavors a chance to meld. Also, adding bacon with onion will make this a main dish. NO SALT added.Submitted by COURTNEYBECKETT

Think you dislike beets? Not after trying this recipe! Roasting brings out the beets' natural sweetness, and the feta offers a salty contrast.

I found several recipes, but not all had the thickening agent. So here is my version, a combo of several I found. I used it with Jennie-O Ground Turkey 20oz and I forgot no salt was added and plenty of flavor even with 20oz meat instead of 16oz.Submitted by THINKAHEAD
