Rated 5 out of 5 by Rose33 from Delicious Recipe (with a few modifications) This recipe is a great starter, a very healthy and filling meal. The only modifications I made were using 4 sprigs of dried thyme, medium onion instead of a small one, twice as much garlic, and I added some chopped fresh rosemary as I was sauteeing the onions and garlic. This gave the soup a lot of good flavor. I also steemed 2 acorn squash (which was probably more than 3 cups full) and added all of the steemed squash to the soup. This helped cut down the acidity but made the soup sweeter. Both ways yielded delicious results!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Laurajax from Outstanding soup! This soup is terrific! And it's incredibly healthy, which is rare in soups that usually use cream bases. Well done!
