• Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. • Cut onion into thick wedges. Peel white turnip, then cut into small chunks. • Place onion and turnip on a lined oven tray. Place peeled pumpkin pieces and garlic & herb seasoning on a second lined oven tray. Season both trays of veggies with salt and drizzle with olive oil. • Toss to coat, spread out evenly, then roast until tender, 25-30 minutes. • In the last 5 minutes, add flaked almonds to the side and roast until golden.


• While the veggies are roasting, boil the kettle. • In a large saucepan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. Toast pearl couscous, stirring occasionally, until golden, 1-2 minutes. • Half-fill saucepan with boiling water, then add a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil, then simmer, uncovered, until tender, 10-12 minutes. Drain and return couscous to the pan. • Add vegetable stock powder and a drizzle of olive oil. Stir to combine.


• In a small bowl, combine plant-based basil pesto and plant-based mayo. Set aside. • Add baby leaves, roasted turnip and onion and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar to the couscous. Stir to combine. Season to taste.


• Divide pearl couscous medley between plates. • Top with roasted pumpkin and plant-based basil pesto mayo. • Sprinkle with flaked almonds to serve. Enjoy!
