This chestnut soup makes a lovely Christmas starter. The chestnuts make this soup velvety and creamy without any cream. You can use nearly any winter pumpkin or squash for this soup, but butternut pumpkin works especially well.
This soup is so easy to make and tastes fantastic. Everyone I have made it for has asked for the recipe. (I don't use the cinnamon as I really didn't like it with it in) - 06 Oct 2014 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
Made with water instead of milk & came out wonderfully smooth & rich, really tasty & warming... - 04 Jan 2017 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
