The smoky, spicy soup toppers add texture and nutrition to this creamy soup. They combine raw sunflower seeds and pepitas, which you'll toast lightly on the stovetop. Pepitas, common in Latin American dishes, are pumpkin seeds (or seeds from other squash) with the hulls removed. Sometimes they're sold with the hulls intact and, often, roasted and salted. They're medium-dark green and nutrient-dense.
