Ingredients

Small pumpkin approx 3 lbs (or substitute with 24 oz. can of pumpkin)
6 cups chicken stock

3 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 lb. crab meat cut up in 1/2 inch pieces (imitation crab meat works fine too)

If you are using fresh pumpkin, cut it up in pieces leaving the skin on and bake on a cookie sheet in the oven for 45 minutes at 350 F. Remove the flesh from the skin and keep on hand. Heat the oil in a skillet and add the onion. Saute for 5-8 minutes. Add the cumin, nutmeg, paprika, cayenne, and basil or dill. Stir for a minute. Pour in the chicken stock and add pumpkin. Simmer covered for 15-20 minutes. Puree the soup in a blender in batches. Return soup to pot. Add the crab meat and simmer the soup for 3-5 minutes. Add cream and stir. Serve with freshly ground pepper to taste
