Heat olive oil in a skillet. Add the onion and carrot. Cook for 5-10 minutes, or until softened. Add the garlic and cook for 30-60 seconds, then add the spices. Cook for another 30 seconds, stirring constantly to prevent burning.
Add the vegetable stock, maple syrup, vanilla, pumpkin puree, and coconut milk. Cook on LOW simmer for about 30-45 minutes.
Puree the soup in a blender before serving. Garnish with toasted pumpkin seeds (optional).
