1 container broth = 1 liter? (it’s not something that is sold worldwide)

Oh gosh, sorry for the un-clarification.

I’m pretty sure that was a 4 cup container gauging from the amount of squash and fruit and how much it filled. It was either 1 cup or 4 cups and it looks like more than 1.

Hey Kath,
Tried this and loved this! Had a kind of Christmasy taste :-) I did add a bit of ginger, though.
I’m a Spanish-Filipino fan living in Sweden right now – been reading your blog for about a year. Thanks for the many great recipes! I’ve tried several at home, most recently the simple split pea soup and the oatmeal pancakes and they were much enjoyed by me and my husband! I also find your commitment to a healthy lifestyle so inspiring… Thanks again, keep up the great blog!
Lara

I love this soup! One thing I always do when cooking butternut or spaghetti squash is save the seeds and roast them later in the evening. A fun snack–not quite as good as pumpkin seeds but close!
