Creamy pumpkin soup with grilled hot dogs
If you are looking for a heart warming fall meal, then creamy pumpkin soup is at the top of fall treats. Creamy soup and crunchy hot dogs make a perfect combination and with each spoonful there is a little feast in your mouth.
I love the simplicity of the ingredients of this soup and how fast you can make it.
There are so many kinds of pumpkins, but my favorite one for the soup is definitely the butternut. The sweet taste of this pumpkin gives the soup the right balance with other salty ingredients.
Here are the steps how to make this creamy pumpkin soup and have healthy fall meal.
Cut the veggies: onion, carrots and pumpkin into the cubes/slices.
Since you will be blending it on the end, you can shop the veggies in your own style as butternut cooks fast.
Saute the onions over the low heat until they become transparent. It usually takes me about 2 min to get them nice a glossy.
Add carrots to the onions and stir all together. Give it a pinch of salt and pepper all over.
Let it all saute for 3 min and then add the pumpkin.
Mix the pumpkin with other ingredients and let it absorb the flavors.
In this step you can add 1 liter of boiling water and a cube of spices or you can use your vegetable broth.

Take your hand blender and blend all ingredients into creamy mix.
You can also pour your soup into the blender and blend until smooth.
Slice the hot dogs into and give them a nice golden color grilling them in your pan with some olive oil.
Once hot dogs have got a nice golden color, pour the soup into the bowl add them on top.
Sprinkle with fresh ground pepper and red paprika flakes.
I hope you will enjoy this delicious creamy pumpkin soup.
