Method 
Finely dice the onions. Peel and crush the garlic cloves. Cut the pumpkin in half and scrape out the seeds. Remove the skin with a knife and then cut the flesh into small chunks.Heat the olive oil in a saucepan and then sweat the onion with a pinch of salt until soft. Add the garlic, cook for 1 minute and then add the pumpkin and the thyme. Cook for a further 5 minutes until the pumpkin begins to soften and then cover with the milk and water. Cook for 30 minutes or until the pumpkin is completely soft. Transfer to a food processor and blend to a purée. Add salt and pepper to taste. If the soup is too thick at this point, add a little more milk. Keep warm until ready to serve.
For the pumpkin seed garnish Preheat the oven to 200°C. Mix the pumpkin seeds with the olive oil, salt and dried chilli flakes.
Lay on a baking sheet and then cook in the oven for 5 minutes. Serve the soup in a bowl with a sprinkle of spicy pumpkin seeds and a drizzle of olive oil.
