  • 6 cups diced pumpkin
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt plus more to taste

  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Roast the Pumpkin - optional:

  • For more flavor, mix the cubed pumpkin with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, arrange on a baking sheet, and roast for 30 minutes at 400 degrees F.

Make the Soup:

  • Add all the ingredients from the SOUP section, except the heavy cream, to the slow cooker.
  • Cook on low for 7-8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.
  • During the last 30 minutes of cooking, add the cream, and use a potato masher to puree the pumpkin.

  • Use a blender or an immersion blender to cream the soup as much as you like.
  • Serve garnished with cream, cilantro, and pepita seeds.
