    We made a similar Butternut-Carrot-Leek Soup for 3 gatherings & each crowd finished off the crock pots full. We season it with chicken broth, cream, white pepper & nutmeg, then serve it garnished w roasted pumpkin seeds & taragon leaves - no potato or sugar keeps the carbs down & calories lower. - 11/29/08

    This is a very good recipe. I read the comments before making it so I added a can of Chicken Broth! Very excellent! I have never eaten any type of squash soup before, so for me, it was like OMG! This is so yummy my husband ate two cups of it! We had it by itself and it made a perfect meal! Thanks! - 11/19/11

    This soup was fantastic! We used sweet potatoes instead of regular, and one can of chicken broth with the rest water. And my husband and stepson, who were skeptical of me serving a soup and nothing else for dinner, both went back for seconds and can't stop raving about it! - 10/23/10

  • This is awesome! I loved it and will make it again. I read the comments first so I used chicken broth instead of water. Also I don't care for Balsamic vinegar so I used what was in my cupboard lol-red wine vinegar,and also used Splenda Brown sugar. Will be looking for more butternut squash recipes! - 11/13/12

  • Delicious! I tippy-toed into slowly adding dill and vinegar to ea bowl so it wouldn't overwhelm the squash.I was a little too generous w/ the amount of water I covered it to simmer. Next time I won't add all of the water to the blender so that the soup will be nice & thick. SO glad it freezes well. - 11/12/12
