Pumpkin, Broccoli and Walnut Salad

This warm salad will make a great side dish or served as a main with extra protein. I made a tahini dressing but my favourite green dressing would be a great addition too! Gluten free and packed full of fibre!



Ingredients (serves 4-5)

  • 1/3 pumpkin, chopped into chunks

  • 1 tbsp Moroccan Seasoning

  • Dash of Olive Oil

  • 1 large head broccoli, chopped into florets

  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

  • 1/4 cup pine nuts

  • 1/4 cup cranberries

  • 1/2 block feta, crumbled

For the Dressing:

  • 3/4 cup Greek yoghurt

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 2 tablespoons tahini

  • 1/2 lemon, juiced

  • 3 tbsp Olive Oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


Method

  1. To roast the pumpkin, pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and pre-line a baking tray with some baking paper. Place the pumpkin on the baking tray and drizzle with olive oil and Moroccan seasoning. Place in oven for 20-25 minutes to bake until nice and crispy.

  2. Place the pumpkin, nuts, broccoli cranberries and feta in a large salad bowl. Mix to combine.

  3. To make the dressing, place all ingredients into a small bowl and mix with a fork or place in a blender and blend until smooth. Season to taste.

  4. Drizzle the dressing on top of the salad to serve.
