This luscious fall-inspired soup features the intense flavor notes of ginger, curry, and crushed red pepper.

How to Make It

1. Combine pumpkin, broth, apple, shallots, ginger, garlic, curry powder, salt, and red pepper in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low until vegetables are very tender, about 7 hours. Stir in 1 cup coconut milk and lime juice.

2. Place half of pumpkin mixture in a blender. Secure lid on blender, and remove center piece to allow steam to escape. Place a clean towel over opening. Process until smooth. Place soup in a medium bowl. Repeat with remaining pumpkin mixture.

3. Ladle soup into bowls. Swirl 1 teaspoon coconut milk into each serving; top with pepitas.
