This was a tasty recipe--but I'll warn you right now, I revised it for a slow cooker only because I don't do ovens when the temps are still in the triple digits (like they are in Phoenix right now).
I made 1/2 the batch. I washed the whole acorn squash then set it in a 5 qt. slow cooker and turned to low for 8 hours. I let the squash cool to handle then peeled and seeded it. I followed the rest of the recipe except I used 1 cup of 2% milk instead of half'n'half and pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon/nutmeg mixture.
Good flavor but will need to modify to improve texture to be more soup-like. I think this might be a great sauce to use with a pork roast and I'm going to try that next time I use this recipe.
I made this for 17 people on Thanksgiving, and it was a hit! I used 2 acorn squash and 2 butternut squash and increased the other ingredients accordingly. The only change I made was 2% milk instead of half'n'half. Delicious! The leftovers were a popular choice for lunch and dinner the next day. It was just as good left-over as it was fresh, and it was good served cold as well as hot.
added a little cream cheese and little hot pepper like we do with our butternut squash soup. Very good with club crackers.
Really tasty soup. I got a load of acorn squash in my CSA storage share and was looking to do something different than the typical sweet side dish preparation of it. I love that this recipe uses half and half instead of heavy cream. With a side of hearty, crusty sourdough bread, this soup is a keeper.
topped it with whip cream and severed it cold guests loved it and thought i was a genius, naturally i took all the credit! Thanks
I recommend substituting in regular milk (I used Almond Milk) for the half and half. Delicious, fast and healthy!
Oh my god! Made it and it was fabulous! My husband said it was one of the best soups he has ever had. I agree. Amazing!
