Method

Heat a large pot over medium-high heat.

Add onion and cook, stirring, until translucent, adding a little water if necessary to prevent sticking, about 5 minutes. Stir in ginger and cook 1 minute, stirring.

Add 8 1/2 cups water, peas and sweet potato and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and simmer until peas and potato are tender, about 1 hour.

Uncover and continue to simmer 15 minutes.

Carefully purée soup with a hand held immersion blender or in batches in a blender until smooth and creamy.

Garnish with pumpkin seeds.
