"Awesome! I did not take out the seeds as my blendec blender just chops them right up. Delicious and tastes like soup you would get at a five star restaurant. Highly recommend."
"Great and easy recipe! I used frozen yellow squash with seeds and added a handful of carrots. I used my smart stick instead of food processor. Delicious!"
"Had a few squash and some thyme leftover from Thanksgiving, and this was a perfect way to use them. I didn't bother to puree, just mashed them with a fork and added a little gravy flour and a a bit of cream. Delicious!"
"This soup is delicious! It.s lo-cal. Can be eaten hot or cold."
"My husband told me this is his new favorite soup ever! I picked fresh summer squash from our garden for this recipe. I only had one onion and no fresh thyme. In place of the fresh thyme I used 1 tsp ground thyme. I love that this didn't use cream and was still a creamy and delicious soup! Will definitely be making this one again!"
