  4. Remove skin from squash and coarsely chop. Add squash and pumpkin to soup stir, cover and simmer on low for another 10 minutes. Use immersion blender to blend soup until creamy. Or blend in batches with a blender or food processor. Return to soup to pan. Add freshly ground black pepper to taste.
  5. Stir in 1 cup of heavy cream. *(to make a healthier soup you can add 1 cup broth in place of cream). Stir until evenly combined. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and roasted pumpkin kernels.
