What you need:
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 large yellow onion, finely diced
2 carrots, peeled and sliced
1 celery stalk, diced
2 cloves garlic, pressed
10 cups vegan vegetable broth
1 28-ounce can pumpkin purée (not pumpkin pie filling)

Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 cup freshly chopped parsley, plus extra for garnish

What you do:
- In a large pot over medium-high heat, heat olive oil. Add onion, carrots, celery, and garlic and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes. Add broth, bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for about 15 minutes.
- Raise heat to medium-high. Add pumpkin and potatoes, stirring and returning to a boil. Reduce heat again and add salt, pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and parsley. Cover and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes. Turn off heat and allow to cool completely.
