Blend in a batches in a liquidiser and then reheat to make a really smooth soup. Creme fraiche takes some of the heat out of this soup if you find it too spicy!
This is the most gorgeous soup. I had never made a soup in my life and this was my first attempt, absolutley lovely - I made one boob, put too much garlic in (5 instead of 2 cos I like it) so on my second batch I am making now, only using 2 as instructed. its got some kick which I like but not over powering and fills you up but VERY low in calories as i cook it with Fry Light instead of olive oil, still keep the butter tho! Go on, give it a go! - 24 Apr 2013
Really good and easy to make. Was dubious about leaving skin on the squash but need not have worried, it all liquidised perfectly and was really smooth. I read in an earlier review that a red pepper could be substituted for one of the chillies so I did that and it was warm without being overpowering. Also used chicken stock as we are not vegetarian. I have been asked to make for friends in large batches after taking to work for lunch. - 14 Dec 2013
