Warm Roasted Pumpkin & Spinach Salad with Dukkah, Pine Nuts & Persian Feta

Dukkah is a wonderful mixture of herbs and spices and can be readily bought at most supermarkets.  I use a pistachio and almond based one which gives a lovely nutty flavour to the dish.

We rarely eat pumpkin any other way these days.  This wonderful warm salad is so versatile and very, very tasty.

You can add or omit ingredients as you wish – it’s lovely with rocket leaves if you prefer the peppery taste.  You can also add in red onion or peppers – it just depends on what you have to hand…  I always use Persian Feta as it is beautifully rich and creamy and is marinated in herbs.  The taste is divine…

Delicious on its own or as a side dish, we also pile it on top of sourdough bread the next day for lunch – heavenly…

Warm Spinach Salad

Ingredients:

Half a butternut pumpkin

I cup of fresh continental parsley roughly chopped

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons of Dukkah

A couple of big handfuls of baby spinach

2 tablespoons of toasted pine nuts

Persian Feta to sprinkle on top

 

Method:

Cut the pumpkin in to even size cubes

Throw into a non-stick roasting pan and add the parsley, oil and dukkah

Toss well and roast for about 30 minutes on 180c fan-forced

Shake occasionally to prevent sticking

When cooked, place in a bowl and throw in the spinach and toasted pine nuts

Put a lid on the bowl and shake thoroughly,

The heat of the pumpkin will wilt the spinach

Serve topped with crumbled Persian feta to taste

 

Bon Appetit   🙂
