"Substitute 1 1/2 cup chicken broth for dry white wine, if desired."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

acorn squash (about 3 3/4 pounds)
butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups
dry white wine
grated lime rind
fresh lime juice
I used lemon instead of lime and half the amount. I also added a little sliced ginger and cumin at the end. This is definitely one of my favorite soups!
The recipe calls for 2 tsps. each of lime juice and lime zest. I believe this is too much. I added the amounts that the recipe called for and the soup was too limey. To counter this I added 2 more acorn squashes and it was still too limey. I think the water bath also watered down the squash taste so i suggest to roast the squash instead of placing it in water.
Superb! I added twice the recipe amount of whipped cream, mostly because I didn't know what else to do with it. The lime was just the perfect touch. My wife thought it was too thin. I'm thinking I could add a bit of instant potato flakes to it to make it thivker without destroying its flavor. Next time maybe I'll try it.
I used veggie broth instead of chicken and half a lime and it was the best soup I've had in a long, long time. Great for Thanksgiving!
yum, carefully clean out the hollowed shells and serve the soup in their natural casing!
Wonderful! Wonderful aroma, wonderful texture, wonderful taste. This is one of the best soups I have ever had. Did not have lime rind, so omitted that, but, wonder of wonders, did actually have some lime juice. For the heck of it, made half a batch of soup with apple cider in place of the wine. Mmmm, talk about a taste of fall. Sweeter and heartier flavor than the wine, but the wine has a subtle delicasy; both tasted great. Used milk instead of cream, with a couple extra tablespoons of butter to give a richer flavor. Only used 4 cups broth, as we like a very thick soup. Hubby said this is a "kick***" soup and I gotta agree.
I used instead frozen, already cooked, Bird's Eye Brand Winter Squash, and non-fat creamer instead to save time and fat. You don't have to have the wine. Soup turned out excellent. This is a good basic recipe - I recommend it any time of the year!
Can i tell you how much i love this soup? It is divine! It takes a bit of work, but it is all worth it. You end up with a pot of flavourful, fragrant soup that has the most delightful hint of lime. Excellent soup!
