The grilled cheese was so good, even my husband liked it. I plan to try it with cheddar also. The soup was pretty good but I did not add even 1/4 of the red pepper, and I am glad. My husband likes it with the proper so he added it and the lime. I liked it as it was with less but near the end of the bowl I decided to add pumpkin spices and it was divine!!! I have to tell you what I added to bump up the nutrition, cannellini beans!!!! I used an immersion blender with the whole pot so not a bean was seen!!!! I added an entire can for one recipe. Did not change the taste at all. Drain the beans, I did not rinse.
This is perfect fall recipe, so comforting and delicious! I will definitely make this again, a real crowd pleaser!
Spices overpowered this great soup. I love butternut squash but I followed this recipe too. I probably won’t make it again. But I ate all my soup.
The spices overpower any butternut squash flavor. I also thought this was too much heat with the cayenne. I think I like the sweeter, warmer styles of butternut squash soup. The grilled cheese was interesting- didn’t mind that part
This is a huge winner. I used my homemade turkey broth, fresh ginger and pre-cut squash. The flavor in the soup is amazing! The turmeric, cumin and cayenne brought just the right amount of spice. I also used my homemade whole wheat bread with the smoked Gouda and sweet red apple. Forkin’ fantastic! I will make this again!
My hub and I have enjoyed this butternut squash soup. I used fresh ginger and garlic, followed the recipe ... which I rarely do. It is quick and is made with items in our pantry. We couldn’t enjoy it all so it's in the freezer now to enjoy later. The grilled cheese with apple is also fast, easy and yummy. I used sourdough bread, spread some Laughing Cow wedges cheese, added the smoked Old Croc cheddar and some Canadian bacon ham. It's on our regular rotation. Thanks!
Maybe it was the cumin or the turmeric or the combo or the coconut milk but this was the most vile tasting thing I have ever eaten! I threw it out. I roasted my squash and it was perfectly roasted and carmelized and tasted delicious until I added the rest of the recipe. I will go back to fat free half and half and no cumin or turmeric. The sandwich on the other hand is great.
I made the soup as per recipe. The grilled cheese can be made with whatever bread you like. I used rosemary sour dough bread and used 2/3 amount sharp white cheddar and 1/3 amount gruyere. It was so good we ate it 2 days in a row. Second day I added bacon to the sandwich. This combination was very rich and delicious. Dip your sandwich in the soup to mellow the sandwich out. Also a grilled cheese cooking tip: use a pan lid to cover the sandwich as it cooks to melt the cheese easier. I also used a flat cast iron pan to cook the sandwich. Get the pan hot then turn it down to crisp the bread and not burn it. If you stack your sandwich high, you can also cook each slice of bread separate with bread cheese then apple slice, then when the cheese is almost melted then put the sandwich together. Anyway YUM!!!
In the apple grilled cheese and we used both brie and Smoked Gouda
