The interesting thing about this soup was that the taste kept changing so significantly across every step. Was very very pleasantly surprised with the flavor after adding the cream. And, indeed, add the bacon because it makes the soup!!
I'm usually a disaster in the kitchen but this was a no brainer & it came out perfect & delicious. I used philamom's advice to use a hand-held blender, great tip! I also went to Whole Foods & got two 20oz.each packages of peeled & cubed butternut squash, it makes 10 servings in this recipe. I used crystallized gourmet honey (I used "Miele d'Fleur", a product of Spain) & didn't puree completely...the flavor & texture were incredible! Now, it's a bit heavy so next time I'd go a little easier on the cream but all in all, such a fantastic recipe!
Creamy, great texture, the hardest part was cutting the squash!!
Very tasty! Reduced the cream by a little bit, but left everything else the same. Thanks for sharing!
This was so good and so easy to make! I didn't even add cream. Flavor was great.
Amazingly good! I used just a hint of milk instead of cream and it was perfect!
Super smooth and satisfying. I added 2 cloves roasted garlic just after cooking the onion. With or without the garlic this is a beautiful, luxurious winter soup!
This was so easy and sooo good! I used Agave (2Tbls) instead of honey and I think that was the secret ingredient. I also used vegetable broth instead of chicken...and skipped the cream. Truly was rich and creamy without it!
This is going to be a Fall/Winter staple.
