READER'S COMMENT:
"Delicious, but needed a little extra body and some tang, so I added just a touch of cream and a squeeze of lemon. Also a little more salt. My 15 year old vegaphobic son enjoyed it! "

Loved It!

Husband looked at soup on the table and plainly wasn't excited - UNTIL he tasted it. After the first few bites he proclaimed it was the best soup he'd ever had! Asked if there was going to be leftovers of it. Clearly a hit!
It is a fantastic tasting soup!!

good flavor

Baja Butternut Squash Soup

This soup was just the ticket for a chilly Vermont afternoon, accompanied by a whole wheat French bread dipped in olive oil and garlic. I mistakenly used 1/4 tsp of chipotle chile pepper instead of the recommended 1/8th, but it added a great kick and greatly enhanced the soup's heating powers. Next time, I'll use 4 cups of veggie broth rather than the 6 cups...and there will definitely be a next time! This constitutes 2 points plus on the Weight Watchers program...thank you for including the nutrition values!

I love the 'cleanness' of this soup, fresh veggies, little or no fat

Just finished this and consensus in the family (including a 6 1/2 year old) was that it was really good! I substituted the chili powder for the chipotle (using the minimum amount just to keep the heat down for the kiddo) and decided to add 2T of brown sugar just for something different in hopes of keeping the kiddo from turning up her nose right away (and I think it worked). This will definitely be made again.
