Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Cut the peeled pumpkin into 2cm chunks. Place the pumpkin on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Sprinkle with the mild Caribbean jerk seasoning (see ingredients list) and drizzle with olive oil. Toss to coat, then roast until tender, 20-25 minutes. Set aside to cool.

While the pumpkin is roasting, drain and rinse the black beans. Drain the sweetcorn (see ingredients list). Thinly slice the cucumber into half-moons. Roughly chop the coriander. Thinly slice the long red chilli (if using). Zest the lime to get a good pinch, then slice into wedges.
