Ratings & Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from All in all, it's a pretty healthy fare. All in all, it's a pretty healthy fare. It was a little on the bland side the first time around, but you can always improvise and experiment with other ingredients such as half-and-half or sugar. Since it can be a hassle to set up the food processor, I used a hand mixer and puree the tender vegetables right in the stock pot.

It's especially good with whole grain crackers. I also found that if I pierced the butternut squash and cooked it in the microwave for a few minutes, the skin was easier to remove

To: jdgraphic While I have not yet made this recipe, I do intend to since I have squash on hand. However, I would like to suggest to that I was able to use a vegetable peeler when I had to peel the squash for another recipe and was quick peeling.
