Ingredients for the pumpkin

  • 1/2 pumpkin (keep the rest as leftovers for the following day) 
  • 1/2 tbsp maple syrup 
  • 1 tsp olive oil 
  • Pinch of Rock Salt 

Method for the pumpkin (or potimarron in french),

  1. Pre-heat the oven @200C
  2. Cut your pumpkin in 1/2, remove the seeds in the middle 
  3. Brush with 1 tbsp maple syrup and olive oil 
  4. Bake @200C for ±40mins until the skin is tender and golden
  5. If you feel it is getting slightly burnt, lower the heat to 190C (depending its size), and extend to ±50mins 

Ingredients for the parsnip

  • 1/2 parsnip

Method

  1. Peel the parsnip and cup into small, bite sized pieces, any shape you'd like (I went for half moons) 
  2. Bring water to boil 
  3. Once the water is boiling, add your parsnips in, and let them cook for 10 mins until tender 
  4. You can also opt for my baked parsnip fries here instead if you'd prefer! 

For the seitan steak, I simply followed the instructions on the packaging. Heat the oven @200C and bake for about 10 mins. 

For the lemon tahini sauce, simply add 1 tbsp of tahini and 1/2 squeeze lemon juice, pinch of salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper, and whisk or mix it all together.

You may add some more lemon juice to adjust the consistency if needed. I like when the sauce is quite thick, not watery.

Putting it all together ( as seen in the picture above)

One the right hand side of your bowl, place your lamb's lettuce drizzle with a touch of olive oil & lemon, then add two slices of your beautifully roasted pumpkin on top 

Next, on the left hand side, add a bed of your boiled or baked parsnips with a drizzle of olive oil & a pinch of rock salt, then top it off with your chickpeas & baked seitan steak 

Drizzle your tahini lemon sauce on top of your chickpeas and seitan & enjoy :)
