I made this recipe and was so impressed with it's texture and taste. A small bowl filled me up and satisfied me for hours. I used granny smith apples and couldn't believe the flavor of this soup! Great source of both fiber and vitamin c!

Good but not great, my husband added lots of salt and pepper and I added a lot of garam masala.

This recipe calls for no seasoning other than ginger and white pepper, leaving this soup VERY bland if you don't at least add salt. This is why I only gave it 4 stars. I sauteed a clove of garlic with the onion, and added salt to taste. I stirred in a bit of butter before serving, as well, to give it a fuller flavor. My guests really enjoyed this soup.

This is just an outstanding recipe tho I did have to make some substitutions like with the butter for low fat and such and I did not have fresh ginger so I did use ground. Also I did not have apple cider and so I used pear juice which I did have and as for the yogurt I had vanilla low fat. And the squash I I had a buttercup squash but I tell you I put all that together and it came out the greatest soup. One thing is for sure you really must have the yogurt garnish or it will be bland. Oh, also I did not have white pepper I had a mixture of peppercorns and ground those fresh and used that instead. If you love squash you must try this soup.

I loved this recipe! In response to all those reviews about flavor, just add a teaspoon or so of cinnamon and maybe half or a quarter teaspoon of nutmeg. You'll be able to smell it when you have the right combo of spices, it will smell like apple pie.

I roasted the squash and apples first and used a ton more spices per everyone's suggestions. This is a total crowd pleaser!

I have been making this recipe for years. I do not find it bland at all and I make it as stated except for adding a little extra ginger. As others have noted it is very filling.
