Roasted Pumpkin & Feta Salad with Pine Nuts

So we in Bombay have no such thing as winter or autumn- or any such cozy concept. What we do have, however, is a lot of enthusiasm & hope 🙂 Come November, there’s that lingering hopefulness that the temperature will drop just a wee bit; enough to cozy up on our couches, all snug in woolen things & nurse a warm bowl of something comforting…just.. like ..in ..the.. movies…….

Moving on!

My enthusiasm waits for no season- so although the weather is far from wintry, my new fave is the gorgeous Roasted Pumpkin & Feta Salad, I’m dying to share!

Deliciously sweet & salty with crunchy pine nuts-a warm bowl of this salad makes a healthy TV dinner for the laziest evening at home.

You Need:

Red pumpkin-1/2 kilo roughly

Feta cheese-1 cup

Pine nuts-a handful

Coriander- a small bunch

Red onion-1/2

Olive oil for tossing

Salt & freshly ground pepper

Lime wedges

What you do is:

  • Skin, deseed & dice up red pumpkin into 1” cubes.
  • Season the pumpkin & toss in a little olive oil.
  • Lightly brush a griddle pan with olive oil & roast the pumpkins on a medium heat- till tender & slightly charred. You could also roast in oven.
  • Place in warm bowl & add crumbled chunks of feta cheese & toss.
  • Chop up coriander & finely slice the red onion.
  • Toss ‘em in with the warm pumpkin & Feta.
  • Roast a handful of shelled pine nuts till toasty brown. Toss in.
  • Serve warm with a wedge of lime!

Delicious & ready in a jiff-I told you, it’s mad easy!
