About this recipe: A creamy butternut squash soup to make in the microwave. Adapt the recipe to suit your taste, with nutmeg, cloves and a hint of cinnamon.
Something else. First time I made the soup I followed the instructions, the only difference been I didn't add any ground cloves simply because I did not have any. The end result was still delicious. Second time I peeled the squash, cubed and added it to a stock pan along with the onions and veg stock. I then simmered slowly with the lid on until everything was very tender and blitzed with a hand blender. The contents were then sieved into another pan to remove any bits and then the rest of the ingredients were added (minus the cloves). I like cinnamon so added a little extra sprinkle to my bowl for good measure :-) - 01 Oct 2009
Deceptively easy to make but with outstanding results. It's tasty, warming and great as a starter. I have made this soup a few times now and people always comment on how wonderful it is. I even made it as the first course for christmas dinner last year. I have joined this site just so I can say thanks. Thanks :-) - 01 Oct 2009
