    Splendid. I used powdered turmeric, frozen butternut squash and a touch of coconut cream. The cashews were a nice touch.

    Awesome flavors! Roasted the squash before adding it to the broth. To part of the soup ( for meat lovers) I added cottage bacon. For vegetarians, only added fennel pollen.

    Delicious! And healthy! I sautéed the spices and onions and garlic together, and added chickpeas for protein.

    Fabulous for a cold or hot day. I tried the soup cold (next day for lunch) and the flavor was even more robust!

    It was a good texture, but found it pretty bland and flavorless. Maybe I needed more turmeric.

    I doubled the quantity of the ingredients to make 8 servings and used 2 tsps of powdered turmeric instead of fresh and it turned out AMAZING! Soup was perfectly rich on its own. Didn't see the need to add any kind of dairy/coconut milk whatsoever. Saving this recipe for many more meals!

    I found myself adding a lot more seasoning, but once I got it right it was very good. I'm curious if clove would work in this recipe. Edit: I garnished with crushed raw unsalted pistachios and it added a subtly sweet nuttiness to soup.

    It’s delicious! But I adapted it heavily. Replaced water with vegetable broth (aprox three cups), replaced fresh turmeric and garlic with powdered (1 teaspoon each). Added one sweet potato. And it turned out amazing!!! Super creamy and sweet.

    Way too much garlic, poor combination of savory without enough sweetness. Like eating liquified sweet potato casserole without the sweetness. Yes I made it, and it wasn’t a hit.

    I added a too large piece of turmeric and it tasted too earthy
