Reviews for Creamy Butternut Soup
"My family loved this soup. I have now made it several times."
"My family loved this- left out the garlic. Great for lunch on a cold winter day. Topped with croutons. Will save recipe on Pinterest!"
"So creamy and yummy."
"This is a family favorite!!!!"
"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."
