Pumpkin and Ginger Soup
Trim the pumpkin, rinse, cut in half, remove the seeds and fibers and cut the pulp into cubes about 2 cm (approximately 1 inch) in size. Peel the shallots and ginger and finely chop both. Sauté together in hot oil in a large saucepan until translucent. Sprinkle in the spices and cook briefly. Mix in the pumpkin and cook for 2-3 minutes. Pour in the juice and broth, cover and let simmer for 15-20 minutes.
Toast the pumpkin seeds in a hot dry frying pan until crispy, fragrant and light. Remove, salt lightly and let cool.
Puree the soup and season with salt and pepper. Distribute in plates, dollop with 1 tablespoon sour cream and drizzle with pumpkin seed oil. Before serving, garnish with pumpkin seeds.
