How to Speed Up Dinner Prep


  • 1. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Line a baking tray with baking paper.

  • 2. Place pumpkin on the baking tray. Season to taste and toss gently. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until tender.

  • 3. Meanwhile, preheat barbecue or grill plate to a medium heat. Brush haloumi with oil and grill for 30 seconds, then flip and cook for another 30 seconds. Set aside.

  • 4. To make the dressing, combine oil and vinegar in a small jug.

  • 5. To serve, combine spinach, pumpkin, haloumi and cashews in a bowl and drizzle with the dressing.

  • Tips:

  • - Kumara could be used instead of pumpkin, if preferred.

  • - Store spinach and other salad greens in airtight containers in the fridge to keep them fresh.
