This could be considered the “low carb” version of the classic hot dog. My daughter wanted her hot dog wrapped in a piece of bologna. Gag me! But she ate every last bit of it. I was afraid no one would believe me and took a photo. You know… for when she gets married and we pull out all the embarrassing photos 🙂
This recipe is America’s Test Kitchen – one of the go to places for good recipes. I like making a big bowl of soup because it is so easy to heat or freeze and goes well with sandwiches or a slice of bread or just an apple. Pumped with lots of vitamin A – there is an entire can of pumpkin in this soup with just enough spices in the background to bring out the flavor without being overwhelming. If trying to do a fancy or fun meal, try it in real pumpkin bowls! But prep the bowls first, this soup only takes a few minutes to whip together.
There is coriander in this recipe (sorry Bryn! :-))and I know that is a rare spice sometimes. I use this spice all the time to make tacos, so you could just increase your cumin a little bit and omit the coriander or save the rest for Taco Tuesday.
