CHARGRILLED PUMPKIN AND HALOUMI SALAD

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Serves: 4

 

Ingredients

800g Kent pumpkin, sliced (see tip)

2 medium eggplants, cut into wedges

120g haloumi, sliced

olive-oil spray

2 teaspoons cumin

400g can no-added-salt chickpeas, rinsed, drained

2 oranges, peel and pith removed, segmented 

1/3 cup chopped walnuts

2 cups baby rocket

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons lemon juice

 

Method

  1. Preheat a large chargrill pan or barbecue hotplate to high. Spray pumpkin, eggplants and haloumi with olive oil; sprinkle with cumin. Cook veg in pan (or on hotplate), turning once, for 5–10 minutes, or until tender. Add haloumi slices and cook, turning once, for 1–2 minutes, or until soft.
  2. Place cooked veg and haloumi on a serving platter, then scatter with chickpeas, orange segments, walnuts and baby rocket.
  3. Drizzle salad with olive oil and lemon juice, season with cracked black pepper and serve.

Variations

Add slices of fresh pear to the salad for some sweetness. You can leave the pumpkin skin intact, as cooking makes it tender enough to eat.
