Chef's Notes

Garnish this soup with some roasted pepitas for an extra crunch. To roast a pumpkin, pick a nicely rounded 2 to 3 lb sugar pumpkin. Wash it, then halve and scoop the seeds out. Place cut-side down on a lined baking sheet and pierce in several spots with a knife, then bake in a 350°F (175°C) oven for 45 minutes or until tender. Try roasting the seeds with it and pureeing into your soup for added fibre!
