Pumpkin Curry Soup with Sweet & Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

This soup satisfies all the flavors you need to convince yourself it's fall already instead of the sweltering 85 degree temperature it remains outside. Totally hands off, just roasting and blending, pumpkin and coconut work beautifully with yellow curry paste.
