I have tried this recipe but I also added sweet potatoes and added Thyme. Loved it!

An option to freezing soups is to put them in mason jars when the soup is very hot of course and this way you can keep it in your fridge for weeks. I find this saves the fresh made flavour better than freezing. Just make sure your lids are sealed ( you hear the pop and feel the indentation).

a word of advice to first-timers - this soup is sweet. another point i'd like to make is this: it works well with water. other notes: my variation was an improvisation based on the egyptian lentil soup. four-five small carrots, pan-fried in butter with cumin. one yellow onion, chopped - added once the carrots softened up. then came in the squash and the boiling water to cover everything. after 25 minutes or so i added goat cheese and pureed the soup. great color, sweet, earthy taste.
