Amazon Bean Soup with Winter Squash & Greens

Shaped like a flattened drum, buttercup squash most closely resembles the local squash used in this comforting hearty soup from northern Brazil. It has a dark green peel, a grayish turban-shaped top and dense orange flesh. Hubbard, butternut or delicata squashes could also be used. Instead of the lip-numbing Brazilian green jambu, we have used spinach. For a more festive look, serve in a roasted squash half (see Tip).

"This soup is GREAT! We recently acquired a list of catabolic foods to help with our diets/exercise program and were happy to see four of the ingredients were catabolic! Very tasty and enough left over for tomorrow! :P D.A.Cool "

I make this delicious soup all winter long. It hits the spot on a cold day.I don't use the buttercup squash not butternut, because the buttercup was so much more money.It's a perfect gift for shut ins who find the tastiness and nutrition a treat!!

Was a bit tedious to prep, but worth it. It's a very tasty soup!
I used butternut squash because it's what I had. I also used black beans because I didn't have other beans on hand. The substitutions were just as good as the original recipe.
Next time, I plan to use the squash called for and try the squash bowls, too!
