"My family loved this- left out the garlic. Great for lunch on a cold winter day. Topped with croutons. Will save recipe on Pinterest!"

"Recipe was very easy to make. We loved the consistency of the soup and the subtle mild flavor. Sour cream enhanced the flavor. I used a butternut squash; but I'll try buttercup next time which I think will give it more flavor."

"I loved the simplicity of this recipe, but my husband and I thought it was completely void of flavor. I tried the brown sugar and nutmeg that another reviewer suggested. I even dumped in some black pepper. We still didn't like it."

"Perfect consistency. I also add 1/4 tsp. nutmeg and about 3 Tbsp. brown sugar. The flavor is enhanced if you use roasted squash and simply blend it in with the potato mixture. To quickly blend, I use a hand blender right in the dutch oven."
