This is my new favourite soup. I only pureed about half of the vegetables but I will probably go ahead and do all of it next time, and just leave it a bit chunky.
I followed the recipe for the most part, the only changes being that I sauteed the onions and leeks in olive oil and a little less butter, used a sweet potato instead of a regular potato, and added garlic, cumin, ginger, and a bit of yellow curry powder in addition to the cinnamon and nutmeg.
I added a couple tablespoons of apple cider vinegar because I didn't have any white wine or cider on hand. I'm not sure it changed the flavour much, but I'm not a fan of vinegar so I didn't want to add too much. I will make sure I have apple cider to use next time.
I baked the butternut squash seeds with a little olive oil and salt and used them as a garnish - so good! And they are really good for you. Don't just throw them out. I like them even better than pumpkin seeds.
Even with the changes I made, this was perfect. You can't really go wrong with this and it's a great soup to experiment with.
