Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Cut the potato (unpeeled) into 1cm chunks. Cut the parsnip into 1cm chunks. Slice the red onion into 2cm wedges.
TIP: Cut the veggies to the correct size so they cook in the allocated time.
Place the garlic, potato, parsnip, peeled & chopped pumpkin and onion on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat, then spread out in a single layer. Roast until tender, 25-30 minutes.
While the veggies are roasting, combine the lemon pepper spice blend and a little drizzle of olive oil in a medium bowl. Season with pepper and add the pork loin steaks. Toss to coat and set aside. Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the flaked almonds and toast, tossing, until golden, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
When the veggies have 10 minutes cook time remaining, return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the pork and cook until cooked through, 3-4 minutes each side (depending on thickness). Transfer to a plate and set aside to rest for 5 minutes.
TIP: You can serve pork slightly blushing pink in the centre.
In a large bowl, combine the roasted veggies, baby spinach leaves and balsamic vinaigrette dressing. Season to taste with salt and pepper and gently toss to combine.
Thickly slice the pork steaks. Divide the roast veggie toss and lemon pepper pork between plates. Sprinkle with the toasted almonds and serve with the garlic aioli.
