Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C
  2. Clean the pumpkin, then cut it into large chunks and cook in the oven until you can pierce it easily with a fork.
  3. Let the pumpkin cool down at room temperature then peel it and purée it by hand with a fork or masher (don't use a blender).
  4. If you want, add a pinch of nutmeg.

  2. After a couple of minutes you should see brown bits appear on the bottom of the pan. Remove from heat and immediately add clean sage leaves so they crisp.
Cook the gnocchi:
  1. When the water boils, salt it then take two teaspoons and make quenelles with the pumpkin mixture.
  2. Throw them directly into the water.
  3. When they start floating, take them out of the water and set aside.
  4. When they are all done - Sautée the gnocchi in the brown butter sage sauce until the outside becomes crispy.
  5. Divide, serve and enjoy!

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 200C and line a baking tray with baking parchment.
  2. For the Butternut Pumpkin, rub each wedge of butternut Pumpkin with oil and season generously with sea salt and black pepper. Place on the lined baking tray.
  3. Roast the Pumpkin for about 45-50 minutes, just until the edges have begun to brown slightly (you want to blacken the edges a little to give them a nice chewy texture). Check the Pumpkin is cooked by inserting a knife - if it slides in easily the Pumpkin is cooked.
  4. For the pesto, add the pistachios and cheese to a food processor. Pulse to break them into small pieces and add enough olive oil to slacken the mixture to your desired consistency (you may not need all the oil). Add all the herbs, the chilli (if using) and lemon juice. Pulse again to combine the herbs and add a little more olive oil. Season generously with sea salt and give the mixture one last pulse. Taste the pesto, to make sure it has enough salt and acidity, and allow it to rest in the fridge until you need it.
  5. To serve, serve the butternut Pumpkin on plates, drizzled generously with the pesto. Crumble your feta over the top and scatter some pomegranate seeds over to finish.

Instructions
  1. First, make the dressing. In a small bowl or jug, whisk the oil, orange zest and juice lightly, then add the pine nuts and set aside.
  2. Hold the asparagus at the base and just below the tip, then snap in two – you will feel a natural breaking point where the asparagus becomes a little woody. Save the woody bases for soups or stocks.
  3. Shred four spears of asparagus using a mandolin (or slice lengthways with a vegetable peeler). Repeat the process with the cooked beetroot. Put the shaved asparagus in a bowl of cold water and set side.
  4. Heat a frying pan or skillet over a high heat until hot. Coat the remaining six whole pieces of asparagus with the oil and place in the hot pan, moving them around in the pan, and season with a few pinches of sea salt. Allow the asparagus to brown, then remove, draining off any excess oil.
  5. Put the roasted asparagus on the plate, then add dollops of the curd. Drain the raw asparagus, then layer it over the curd with the slices of cooked beetroot. Stir the dressing and drizzle over the dish. Add some baby salad leaves to decorate, if you like.

MAKE THE HERB SAUCE: In a blender or food processor, pulse the parsley, cilantro, mint, green onion, garlic, lemon juice and olive oil until completely smooth. Set aside.
  1. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, sear the cauliflower steaks until they are golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side. The cauliflower should be easily pierced with a fork but not so tender that it falls apart.
MAKE THE CAULIFLOWER STEAKS: With a sharp knife, cut the cauliflower into 1-inch-thick slices. (You should get about 8 slices.) Rub both sides of each piece of cauliflower with about 1 teaspoon olive oil. Sprinkle both sides of each piece with 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika, salt and pepper.
  1. To serve, place 2 cauliflower steaks on each plate and top with a generous drizzle of the lemon-herb sauce. Serve immediately with steamed wild rice.

Leftover sauce will keep in the refrigerator for up to a week.

  1. Roast grew pumpkin cubes - drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with some salt and baked on a baking tray in a 200c oven for about 20 mins - Remove and set aside.
  2. Heat up oil on a medium heat, in a heavy bottom pan. Once the oil is hot, add mustard seeds and wait until they start popping, stirring from time to time. Wait another minute before adding onion.
  3. Add chopped onion, sweat it gently, stirring from time to time until it gets almost soft.
  4. Add garlic, ginger, fresh chilli and chopped coriander stalks. Cook for 2 minutes stirring frequently so that ginger does not stick to the pan.
  5. Now add all the ground spices and 1 tsp of salt. Reduce the heat to low and coat everything in the pot in spices. Stir frequently, cook for 1-2 minutes until all spices are fragrant.
  6. Add chopped tomatoes and ¼ cup / 60 ml of water. Cook for 2 minutes until tomatoes become mushy.
  7. Add coconut milk and pumpkin. Let everything come to a gentle boil, simmer covered until pumpkin is tender. If you’re roasting the pumpkin, simmer the sauce for about 10 minutes.
  8. Taste and adjust spicing if needed. I added a bit more salt and a 2 teaspoons of maple syrup.
  9. Serve with coriander leaves and chopped cashews on top, with basmati rice or a roti.
