Warm beetroot, pumpkin & feta salad


  • Preheat oven to 200°C fan forced (220°C normal).
  • Wrap each beetroot in foil and cook in the oven until tender, when pierced with a sharp knife. Then remove and, when cool enough to handle, peel and slice.
  • At the same time, cut the pumpkin into thickish slices and remove the skin. Toss with oil and seasonings, and cook in the oven until tender.
  • Then gently toss the pumpkin with the watercress, a little fresh oil, the lemon juice and seasonings.
  • To serve, arrange the beetroot on individual plates and dress with a little oil and lemon juice to taste. Mound the salad on top, scatter the feta over and sprinkle with a little more oil and lemon juice.
  • nb. This can be served as an accompaniment or a light starter.


  • 4 beetroot, scrubbed
  • ½ butternut pumpkin
  • olive oil
