I made a number of modifications, but this was very good. I had searched for a sweet potato bisque recipe and found this one. I did not have any butternut squash, so I just used 5 sweet potatoes. (In retrospect, the flavor would have been far too mild if I had followed the recipe and used squash plus 4 sweet potatoes.) Based on suggestions of other reviewers, I sautéed the onion, garlic, and ginger first, added a diced apple and some diced celery, and used vegetable broth in addition to water. Instead of adding yogurt, I blended in some silken tofu. The resulting soup was pretty good, but following the recommendation of at least one reviewer, I then tried adding some curry -- that really enhanced the flavor. My husband is a picky soup eater and, although he wasn't thrilled with this before I added the curry, he complimented it TWICE after he ate it with the curry. Next time I make this recipe, I will use more fresh garlic and ginger (especially ginger).
