Reviews for Butternut Squash Bisque with Sour Cream Topping
Sort By :
The carrots and tomatoe seamed to over power the almondy flavor of the butternut squash that I so love and have come to expect from butternut bisque.
I've made this recipe several times and it does not disappoint! It requires a little more work than some, but IMO, is the quality that would be served in a fine restaurant. I don't make it too often, for fear of getting tired of it. Try it (and NO ALTERATIONS!!!)
My wife and I have both made this soup several times and made slight variations to the recipe, and have won praise every time
Excellent taste. I loved it.
