Don't limit yourself to one recipe: experiment by adding things you love. Here are some examples I tried:

- add a few cloves of garlic for a little more zing

- add celery cubes for a little bit of a crunch

- add some cinnamon

      Adriana, you have a hit here. I had a butternut squash and had heard about making soup for it, so I searched Squidoo and your recipe showed up first and I cam over. I have to admit I was a little skeptical about how creamy it could be without any cream...trust me, its rich creamy deliciousness. I had some left over mashed potatoes and used that instead of the two small ones and did add celery. I used my imagination and served it with a dollop of white cheddar and a grate of white cheddar for fun. You are right about this being a comfort food to be enjoyed again and again and so easy to prepare. I also added an extra dash of nutmeg...yummy and economical as well as nutritious!

      Okay, that is ridiculously simple. I will try it, but maybe with sweet potato and olive oil to give it a Paleo twist. Thank you!

      Sounds yummy to me. My wife makes great soup - usually from whatever happens to be lying around. I need to make sure that we have some butternut squash lying around in the near future I think.

      I love soups. And I had to quickly pass by your soup bowl section. I'm a bit addicted to soup bowls and there's no more room in the house. Anyway, this is a good recipe and I'm going to try your suggestion to roast the butternut and add some cinnamon. Thanks!
