  2. Chop the onion and garlic and sauté in oil or butter. Add the diced pumpkin, roast briefly and add the soup. Season with salt, pepper, nutmeg and a little ginger and simmer.
  3. Once the pumpkin is soft, puree the soup in a blender while adding whipped cream and season to taste. If the soup is still too thick, simply stretch it with a little water or broth. Drizzle with a little pumpkin seed oil and sprinkle with a few roasted pumpkin seeds.
