    The soup is "alright". It tastes nice but isn't my favourite soup ever. I made half a batch which means I had it for 3 days - that was about 200 ml (about a cup) and that's not much for a lunch at work. I added a little bit of water as it thickened overnight but that still wasn't much. Today, I cubed an avocado in it and it made it a little better - but I'm a sucker for avocados so it might not work for everyone. This isn't part of the recipes I will make again.

    This recipe is delicious. It has a wonderful layering of flavors. In addition, I add an apple cider syrup that I have to highlight the autumn goodness of this dish. Serve it with parmesan crisps, or warm biscuits!

    This was good, but a little on the bland side. We used stock just to spruce it up, and it was still a little bland. Because it's so healthy, I would try it again, but I think I'd try doubling the spices.

    still eating this long after the cleanse, absolutely my favorite recipe! I've even experimented with substituting sweet potatoes instead of squash it was just as delicious

    Delicious! Love the sweetness that the apple brings, and the pumpkin pie-ish spices. I also added vegetable stock (per other user reviews) to give it more flavor.

    The first time I made this, I followed the recipe to a "T" and it was very good. The second time, I made some changes. I used homemade vegetable stock (unsalted) instead of the water and it brought this soup up to a whole other level - without having to roast the vegetables as other reviewers suggest. Absolutely delicious - my favorite recipe in this cleanse plan by far!

    Not a fan. I had to add extra salt just to eat it. But then, I don.t like squash. Did not like the texture either. So far this cleanse has been really tough. I'm not really liking the recipes so far with the exception of the smoothies. I hope everyone else is doing good.

    Eating this now and it's really great. I bumped up the cardamom, ginger and garlic a bit, and roasted the squash, carrots and apples. I prefer roasting to boiling most of the time. Lovely soup not just for detox but for any time!

    Excellent recipe! I slowly roasted the squash because I feel you always get more flavor. I also made my own almond milk and added that for creaminess. I also made a little pesto with some of the nuts I had (pistachio, almond, walnut) and cilantro. Really, really good stuff!!
