Notes

Vegan? Replace the heavy cream with some creamy coconut milk or coconut cream
Using Canned pumpkin puree? Instead of roasting the pumpkin, you can substitute two to three cans of pumpkin purée. Just skip steps 1 and 2, and add two cans of pumpkin purée in step 4. You’ll still want to blend the soup for the best texture; add more pumpkin purée at that point if you’d like thicker soup.
Want to toast your pumpkin seeds? Pick off all the flesh bits from the seeds and discard them.  Toss the seeds with a little olive oil, a sprinkle of salt and any other seasonings that sound good (I tossed my pumpkin seeds in some curry powder and some other spice). Toss to coat. Line a small, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and arrange the pumpkin seeds in a single layer. Roast for 13 to 16 minutes, until the seeds are fragrant and toasty.
