awesome soup! used more of all the spices. mixed tubed cilantro and the lime juice in with it while cooking. served with sunflower seeds, but i liked it better without. had exactly 4 cups from my squash. so creamy! i read to microwave the squash with punctures in the bulb part for 3 min intervals at power 7……it cooked fine, but getting the skin off was difficult. will go back to my "cutting and deseeding first" way next time.
