Spicy Butternut Squash and Cauliflower Soup

Spicy Butternut Squash and Cauliflower Soup

Introduction

This is a great soup for a cold day. Goes great as a starter course but is also hearty enough to hold its own at lunch. This is a great soup for a cold day. Goes great as a starter course but is also hearty enough to hold its own at lunch.

    Is this the correct sodium count? - 2/18/10

    The sodium was automatically calculated by Spark Recipes when I punched in Chicken Broth. I think if you used low sodium broth or made your own broth it would be much much lower! I usually make my own broth which has almost no salt in it...hope that helps!

  • I'm making this for dinner tonight, but am wondering if 10.8 grams of protein per serving is correct. - 2/2/11

    These amounts were all automatic when I first added the ingredients to the recipe...there must have been a problem with the original values because now the automatic protein is coming up as 3.2 g per serving. I will see about getting it corrected...

  • Absolutely divine! Although I recommend leaving out the Tbl of salt if you are using store bought broth which already has a lot of sodium in it. Will be making this again and again!!! - 1/10/11

  • I never thought of this combination before today. I made a similar soup from an online recipe that used a tbl of curry powder. Now I'll have to try this spice combo - 3/30/09

  • I made mine as a stew or saute. It is fine made with just a small amount of water and served on brown rice. The spices make this dish. - 3/27/08
