Preheat your oven to 400F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Peel and cut the pumpkin into 2-inch pieces and place them into the prepared baking tray, together with the garlic cloves.
Season with salt and pepper, and lightly spray with avocado oil to coat, then spread into a single layer.
Place the tray on the middle rack of the oven, and roast until pumpkin is fork-tender, about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, prep the remaining veggies. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, carrots, celery and sauté until softens, about 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add in the smoked paprika, roasted pumpkin, and garlic (pop it out from the skins). Pour in the broth and bring to the boil, then continue to cook for a couple of minutes or so.
Take it off the heat, and puree with an immersion blender until smooth.
Season with salt and pepper to taste and garnish with desired toppings. Enjoy!
