A warm pumpkin, pork & green bean salad


  • Preheat oven to 200°C fan forced (220°C normal).
  • Toss the pumpkin with oil and seasonings in a heavy-bottomed baking tray. Then cook in the oven until tender and caramelised.
  • While the pumpkin is roasting, thickly slice the pork on the diagonal and batten out a little.
  • Mix together the garlic powder, brown sugar, chilli powder and ground cumin in a large bowl. Then add the pork and toss until well coated. Set aside for up to 15 mins.
  • To make the dressing, combine the crushed garlic with the lemon juice, 6 tbsp oil, seasonings and the mustard. Set aside.
  • Blanch the beans in a pot of lightly salted, boiling water. Drain well.
  • At the same time, cook the marinated pork on a lightly oiled, preheated ridged grill (or BBQ). Remove and rest for 5 mins before slicing.
  • Gently toss the pumpkin, beans, pork and witloof with dressing to taste and serve.
