Apples add just a hint of sweetness to this velvety pumpkin soup. Try it as a delightful first course for a special meal.



READER'S COMMENT:
"The taste was a little bitter, but was definitely softened by the hazelnuts and oil. I found the oven temperature in the recipe to be too high. The pumpkin got burned spots on it fairly quickly. Also, the apple takes much less time to...

Steaming the pumpkin (cut up) first will make it much easier to peel.

This is an awesome soup. I first made it with Delicata squash (we get tons of various winter squashes through our CSA), and it was super sweet. My kids lapped it up. The hazelnuts are a must; they finish the flavor/texture nicely. I cannot find hazelnut oil in my town, however, but it's fine without.

I just made a HUGE pot of this to serve at our Christmas party. An odd choice for serving, I know, but I only had one person out of about 20 that didn't like it. Many asked for the recipe. This time I used a Blue Hokkaido squash and it wasn't as sweet, but I actually liked it better. The type of squash used will definitely determine your final result! Fabulous.

I peeled the Delicata with a veg peeler, and I would do the same with a Butternut. The Hokkaido is more pumpkin-ish and harder to cut, though. I halved it, scooped the seeds, and placed it in a 13x9" pan. I baked it with 1/4" of water at 350 about an hour, so it was beginning to be tender, but not falling apart, and then let it cool. It was easy to peel then, and I chopped it up and proceeded with roasting it as the recipe stated.

This did NOT taste good. I served it as a first course for Thanksgiving and the nicest thing anyone could say was that it reminded them of baby food!!! I won't waste my time again

How can you give something 4 stars if it did not taste good?
