In a large frying pan over a medium heat, melt the butter and add the onion and garlic. Cook and stir for 5 minutes until softened but not browned. Add the potatoes, pumpkin, leeks and carrots and cook and stir for a further 5 minutes. Add the ginger, nutmeg, parsley and thyme and cook for a further 2 minutes. Finally add in the chicken stock and reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 1 hour.
After an hour, use a hand held blender to purée the soup. Transfer to heated bowls and drizzle with a little olive oil. Add a dollop of crème fraiche and some parsley to garnish. Serve immediately.
