Add the squash, potatoes, and carrots into the pot and turn down to simmer. Place a lid on top of the pot and let everything steam for about 10-15 minutes or until you can easily pierce the veggies with a fork. Take the veggies in the pot and place in a blender. Add coconut milk, tumeric, cumin, curry powder, salt, and pepper. Then blend up all ingredients together until desired texture. Take a dry pan and turn on medium heat, toss the pumpkin seeds in the pan and toast for 2-3 minutes. Add pumpkin seeds on top of the soup with chopped parsley.
