To begin, this is my type of recipe. 1 pot, simple preparation.
Caveat, I liked the soup, my husband did not. I think the ginger "makes" it, he definately did not care for the ginger.

Butternut Squash & Sweet Potato Soup
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 pound butternut squash, peeled and diced
1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
1 medium-size Yukon gold or russet potato, peeled and diced
6 cups chicken stock
Salt & Pepper to taste

1. Heat the oil in a heavy soup pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the ginger and stir together until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the squash, sweet potatoes, regular potato, and stock, and bring to a boil. Add salt to taste, reduce the heat, cover and simmer 1 hour, or until all of the ingredients are thoroughly tender.
2. Using an immersion blender, puree the soup. Adjust salt and add pepper to taste.

LOL! This sounds so much like dear husband and myself...I baked squash once and he hated it! To me, your recipe sounds so good.
