Directions

Preheat the oven to 450ºF.

Cut sugar pumpkin in half, and remove seeds. Place pumpkin cut side down on a baking sheet, and bake for 40 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium heat, boil potato in water to cover for about 7 minutes or until tender. Drain and set aside.

Scoop out pumpkin flesh and set aside.

In a large pot over medium heat, heat extra-virgin olive oil. Add carrots, celery, white onion, and salt, and sautee, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes.

Add sage, and cook for 4 more minutes.

Add chicken stock, and cook for 5 minutes.

Add pumpkin and potato, and using a handheld immersion blender or in a food processor fitted with a chopping blade, blend mixture for 1 or 2 minutes or until smooth.

Add cumin, coriander, turmeric, nutmeg, cinnamon, and sugar. Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook for 10 minutes.

Add heavy cream, and remove from heat.

In a small saucepan over medium heat, toast sunflower seeds for 2 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve immediately, topped with toasted sunflower seeds.
