  1. Heat the oil in a heavy skillet and gently sauté the onion and garlic until soft and translucent but not yet beginning to brown.
  2. Add the pumpkin and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent scorching.
  3. Allow to cool slightly for safety and then process into a smooth puree in a blender or food processor.

  6. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and nutmeg (optional) To serve garnish each serving with a dollop of sour cream and a sprig of fresh dill weed.
