OOPS again.. this review was for the "Panera AUTUMN Butternut Squash soup"...wrong review for this recipe.. so sorry. It's for the other one -- with honey in it, for sure.

oops.. my comment went two times. sorry... new to site...

I made this soup for 50 people for a very special New Year's Day dish-- the MAIN dish I was serving, for my Housewarming Party, as well as New Year's day... and I used the amount of honey it called for-- against my better judgment -- and it was HORRIBLE. WAY TOO MUCH HONEY!!! In fact, no honey would have been appropriate because it is sweet potatoes, apple juice, etc... It is now New Year's Eve. I cannot go to the party I was going to go to.. Instead, I have to stay home and make this soup completely over again. The time and money this has cost me... when i trusted this site so much, for its recipes, has made me very upset. Someone should have known that this recipe was crazy for so much honey in it.

I am horrified. It is New Year's Eve and this was supposed to be my main ingredient for my New Year's Day Party and New Housewarming... I spent all day making this soup. Against my HUGE better judgment, I added the preposterously large amount of honey -- to a soup which already has plenty of sweetness going on-- and it was un-edible. All I tasted was honey... I tried to doctor it up and it is hopeless. I had to cancel my New Year's plans.. am staying home tonight and re-doing this soup. How could no one taste this bad mistake in these reviews? It called for almost a full cup of honey. I doubled the recipe for the 50 people I am having over ( that was another thing: it did not say how many servings this recipe was for !)--and that was over a cup of honey-- almost the whole jar of it. Well, I was right; it was horrible. The only good ingredient was the garam masala...I am so angry though, because I really trusted this site-- my first time on it. sigh....

I have viewed the ingredient list (allergy search) in the book at Panera. It contains honey, apple juice, vegetable stock, heavy cream and it is spiced with curry and nutmeg mixed into pumpkin and butternut squash base. No walnuts, no hot sauce!

I'm thinking there are more than one recipes for the soup at Panera may be based on location. The squash soup we had at ours in Arkansas had a lot of ginger in it. It didn't have curry in it either. That could be part of the problem with people not thinking it is like the one they are looking for. My daughter is a CIA trained chef and she loves it because it had all the ginger in it. Just a thought....

Couldn't help but notice all the comments that this is not like Panera's soup. Here's the ingredients the website lists, although the cook will have to decide how much of everything to put in. "A blend of butternut squash and pumpkin, simmered in vegetable broth with honey, apple juice, cinnamon and a hint of curry, then finished with sweet cream and topped with roasted and salted pumpkin seeds."

I have been looking for the recipe for Autumn Squach Soup and have not been able to find it. Is there some way that I could get the recipe? Thanks you, Mary Jo Wolf

There's no way this recipe is going to taste even similar to Panera's. You're missing the sweetness, the cinnamon and curry flavors, not to mention there are no walnuts in Panera's. They use a light sprinkling of pignoli nuts for crunch.

On behalf of AllFreeCopycatRecipes, we're sorry you feel that way. Because this is a copycat recipe, it's not guaranteed to taste exactly like Panera's soup but it will curb your craving for their Butternut Squash Soup with an easy-to-make recipe.

I agree with you Jenn0616! There are definitely no walnuts in Panera's soup and it had just a hint of sweetness! This recipe doesn't capture what I loved about the original.

panera's squash soup is VEGAN... there is no way it has chicken stock in it. this recipe calls for chicken stock.

It's not vegan, it has cream in it. It is vegetarian. Panera uses Vegetable stock in theirs.

The soup has a sweet taste which I believe is honey. Your recipe doesn't even list that ingredient.

The sweetness may just be from the butternut squash...Though I couldn't help noticing just how sweet the soup was at Panera bread.
