I made the soup as written and it was too bland (3 star). So, I decided to tweak it. Voila! A 4-5 star in my family's opinion. Everyone from little to 87 year old grandma loved it. My version: 1. Microwave a butternut squash for 12 min., cool, then peel. 2. Saute chopped onion, several cloves of garlic, celery, potatoes, carrot in butter with a couple Tbsp bacon grease until tender. 3. Add squash. 4. Add organic chicken broth. 5. Simmer for 1 hour or so. 6. Use a stick blender to puree. 7. Season with salt, pepper, cinnamon, ginger, curry, few drops of tabasco sauce, a little sriracha, and some sugar (all to taste). 8. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes. Thanks for the recipe to which I was able to add our own family's little twist. Delectable!
