When the weather turns chilly, wholesome soup hits the spot. This one tastes like autumn, with vitamin-rich squash and the earthy flavor of mushrooms. Adding cream makes it velvety smooth.—Gilda Lester, Millsboro, Delaware

I love this soup. I garnish it with crumbled goat cheese, and use 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme instead of the fresh. Love the texture. That's a whole lot of squash though!
