Post 12, in which I give you the recipe for roast pumpkin salad

I have been spending an awful lot of time in the kitchen lately, so to catch up with my blog posts, I am going to share with you some recipes.

Roast Pumpkin and Pine nut salad.

1/2 a small pumpkin
rocket or baby spinach or mixed leaves
pine nuts (small handful)
Parmesan cheese
Balsamic dressing (you can also use lemon juice)


Cut pumpkin into smallish pieces, drizzle with oil and roast in oven until cooked through. remove and allow to cool.

Heat a small pan and toss pine nuts in and stir until they are golden brown and remove from heat. Do not add any oil to the pan.

Place leaves in a salad bowl, add pumpkin, pine nuts, parmesan (to taste) and toss. Add balsamic dressing to taste.

Tada! My favourite salad.


  1. Sounds delish! This is what I've been making with pumpkin. Twice in a month.

  2. Woah that looks decadent and totally delicious!
