    Great flavor. I actually sweated the onions with some whole garlic cloves before adding the other ingrediants and then I put a tablespoon of non-fat plain yogurt into the bowl of soup. Even my "taste-challenged BF" liked this dish. Great for cold winter nights. - 11/15/08

    Very good! The only thing I do differently is that I roast the squash, apples and onions at 425 for 45 minutes and then pour into the stock. - 10/1/10

    I also added carrots and celery. I was being lazy to I used a 12 oz. boxed of frozen pre-cooked butternut squash, which worked great. - 4/28/10

    This is a great recipe! Delicious soup & I also use it over meat or vegetables.....definately healthier than gravies or sauces. Good way to get extra veggies in your meals. This is a keeper for sure! - 10/5/08

    I hadn't thought of using it as a sauce and you are so right, it would be good for veggies. I wonder about putting it on pasta....I may try that this week. Thanks for the tip.

    I haven't made this recipe, but was wondering why it's called ROASTED Butternut Squash Soup...nothing was roasted.

    Doesn't mean I won't try it...just wondering. - 10/20/10

    OK as is, but requires additional spices! I added ground cloves with much success. A little splenda perks it up too. - 10/22/08

    Just made this for supper...easy and delicious. I swirled a tablespoon of softened lt.cream cheeses in it and a sprinkle of walnuts before serving... It's a keeper for sure! - 10/19/08

    I like your idea of swirling the cheese and adding a few walnuts, that gives it a nice presentation. Thanks for trying my recipe.

    Just made this and thought it was ok. I roasted the squash, onion and a bit of garlic first then added the remaining ingredients. I also added 1/2 cup of coconut milk to the batch shorthly before serving. I still felt it could use a bit more flavor/spice! - 5/14/11

    Well didn't have Vegetable broth so I used Chicken Boullion instead then I didn't have to use any salt..didn't have an apple so I used a can of applesauce which made it thicker..no nutmeg so used a pinch of cinnamon..added a little light sour cream on top when I served it ..yummy! - 1/31/10

    I made a similar recipe that used apple juice instead of the apple, 2/3c evaporated milk, added celery and a potato. I also added bay leaves, 1 garlic clove, and thyme. I didn't have to add any salt. This was awesome!! I just made my second batch!! - 1/5/09

  • I too roasted the apple, squash and onion for the 45 minutes. I also added carrots and celery, that I cooked in Chicken Stock not the vegetable stock. The whole family loved it! I will definitely make this soup again!!! - 1/7/14

  • Boring. No flavor. I even used chicken broth instead of veg broth. I tried adding Red Hot, or Worchestershire sauce for better flavor. The only thing that made it taste good was cheese, which defeats the purpose of healthy soup. Not making this again. - 11/27/11

  • Didn't have vegetable broth, so I sub'd what I had -- 2 cups Progresso low sodium & 2 cups defatted turkey stock leftover from Chef Meg's Herb Roasted Turkey. Added about 1/2 cup of fat free evaporated milk & just a dash of agave; it was yummy. - 12/2/10

  • I did a version of this recently and absolutely loved it. The immersion blender works great. I sauteed the onion (chopped finely) first a a tiny bit of olive oil. You can also add a small amount (few tablespoons) of low fat cream cheese to add some creamyness without added fat. - 11/11/10

  • I love this soup. I roasted the squash and apples with the onions and some fresh garlic. I used cumin instead of nutmeg. It was so good. Yummy! - 11/1/10

  • I did add a small clove of garlic to mine, cause I just LOVE garlic! I didn't have any veggie broth so, I had to use low sodium Chicken.
    Also, I didn't have nutmeg, so I used cake spice! LOL...

    Oh, and a very tiny bit of fresh pineapple. Maybe equivalent to one ring! AND I made a double batch! - 10/28/10
