I did a very personalized version of this recipe as I was making it for 1 and I didn't have the acorn squash. I added more garam masala and didn't add any of the veggie broth based on the thickness it was after pureed. I think the "soul" of the recipe was still in my version and I found it perfect for a winter's night soup.

I agree with the previous review that the flavors in this soup are a bit thin. I was expecting to be overwhelmed with Indian spices and was super disappointed with the result. It wasn't bad, but I don't think I would bother making it again

I really like how this soup doesn't play up the sweetness of the butternut squash. I doubled the amount of garam masala however, I felt that the flavors were a little thin without it. If I re-do it, I think I will use 2 cups of veggie broth instead of water to make the puree, or maybe just one cup of broth and a little bit of water if necessary. With the 2 cups of water, I wasn't scraping anything off the sides of the mixer, and I felt it thinned out the taste of the squash.

A very earthy, thick soup great for the winter. I agree that it wasn't overwhelmingly spicy, so I added extra turmeric and coriander. Instead of toasted seeds to garnish, I topped it with chopped pistachios and fresh arugula to contrast the flavors. YUM!

I LOVE THIS SOUP!!! Recipe is solid. I did add a little extra salt, pepper, and red pepper and I made my own garam masala substitute because I didn't have garam masala in my spice cabinet. Just google garam masala substitute for the recipe. I will definitely be making this again. If you are a fan of curry or Indian food, you will love this soup. It was so easy to make.

this soup is worth the preparation on the front end. once the vegetables were roasted and cooled, i added two cans of chicken broth and used an immersion blender to break up the vegetables. i did add the additional two cups of water and i increased the amounts of curry powder, garam masala, and red pepper. the soup is fantastic and flavorful.
