Chef Shayna from the Young Chef's Academy shows us how to whip up a creamy pumpkin soup in its own bowl.

1 sugar pumpkin, deseeded

1/2 shallot, sliced
1 garlic clove minced
vegetable or chicken stock
1 tbs maple syrup
three sprinkles of nutmeg
parmesan cheese

salt & pepper
garnish:
heavy whipping cream or full-fat coconut milk/cream

1. Preheat the oven to 400
2. Use a paring knife to remove the top of the pumpkin and scrape out the seeds & fibrous strands.

3. Add in the shallots & garlic and pour in the stock leaving a border an inch from the top. Add in maple syrup a few shakes of nutmeg & salt & pepper to taste. Sprinkle on parmesan cheese & return the lid to the pumpkin.
4. Place on a baking sheet and put in the oven for 1 1/2 hours until the outside of the pumpkin softens. If the stem starts to burn cover it with a piece of tin foil.
5. After removing it from the oven pour in a little bit of heavy cream or coconut milk. Use a spoon to scrape down the side and stir together. You have the option to use an immersion blender to blend it all together to make a creamy soup. Be careful not to knick the sides of the pumpkin.
6. Serve in the pumpkin & enjoy>
