This tasted great. I found the squash needed a bit more time steamed. I added another 5 mins. I toasted the seeds while I was cooking as a garish: wash and dry seeds and lightly coat them with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt,pepper and paprika Bake for 15 mins at 350.

The proportions were good, however, the soup was a bit bland, in my opinion. It improved greatly with a generous amount of garam masala. I roasted the seeds from the acorn squash with salt and paprika for a garnish.
