HEAT oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, for about 6 to 7 minutes or until softened.

ADD pumpkin, evaporated milk, broth, salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper; bring to a gentle boil. Reduce heat to low; cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.

REMOVE from heat; slowly add cheese in small batches until cheese just starts to melt. Ladle soup into individual bowls; top with pumpkin seeds or pistachios.

* To toast the pumpkin seeds or pistachios: Place in a dry skillet; toast over medium heat, shaking skillet occasionally, until lightly browned and fragrant. Watch carefully to prevent burning.
