Cloyingly sweet & one note I was really excited to try this recipe, we're always looking for new healthy meal ideas! Unfortunately, the finished product was overly sweet from the buttercup squash & lacked depth of flavor. Even after jazzing it up some & trying it for lunch again today, (sometimes leftovers are better) I'm sorry to say this meal will not be repeated again. The good news is that our 10 month old seemed to enjoy it as a puree, so, I'll be blending up what's left & freezing it in cubes for future meals. Waste not, want not! Pros: Nice texture & consistency, great flavor profile for children Cons: Overly sweet, one note
I've made this soup twice in the past week. We are trying to eat gluten, sugar, lactose and soy free so this recipe was perfect and very delicious. I used butternut squash and used a potato peeler to peel the skin off before I cut it up. It really worked slick. I cooked up my own pinto beans the first time and used canned the second. There was no difference in the taste.
Awesome! I made this for dinner tonight and the only things I changed were I substituted red kidney beans for the pinto and used butternut squash. It came out really great and tasted like I used a lot more spices than I actually did. The lime also really adds great flavor!
This soup is easy and delicious. We skipped the squash bowls but it would make a fun presentation. I added chopped fresh cilantro at the end along with the lime which gave it a little zip. I think this is best made the day before, which I did, since the flavors are not bold but blend nicely together. beans, greens and winter squash, how can you go wrong!
I made this tonight, and it was delicious. I used two kinds of winter squash and added chicken for some protein. We really enjoyed it. This will become one of our winter favorites, I am sure.
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!
