In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat. Saute garlic and leek until soft and translucent, about 4 minutes. Add apple, ginger and cook for 3 minutes. Add butternut squash, yam and stock; simmer until squash and yam are tender, about 15 minutes. Add chipotle or paprika. Working in batches, transfer mixture to a blender, and puree until smooth; transfer pureed soup to a large bowl or another pot. For safety, remove cap from the blender lid and cover with a dish towel to prevent spattering. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Dollop a teaspoon of crème fraîche and a teaspoon of toasted pine nuts right before serving.
