We love thinking outside the box, like using aromatic green curry paste to flavour roasted pumpkin, then adding a creamy peanut dressing to make a warm, satisfying salad. It's the Thai flavours you love, served in a fresh new way!

Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. In a medium bowl, add the peeled & chopped pumpkin, Thai green curry paste (1/2 tin for 2 people / 1 tin for 4 people), a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper and toss to coat. Spread the pumpkin out on an oven tray lined with baking paper and roast until tender, 20-25 minutes.


While the pumpkin is roasting, finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press).


In a medium saucepan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the coconut milk, peanut butter, crushed peanuts, soy sauce and brown sugar. Bring to the boil and stir to combine. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until well combined and thickened slightly, 1-2 minutes. Set aside to cool.


Grate the carrot (unpeeled). Thinly slice the pear (see ingredients list). Slice the lemon (see ingredients list) into wedges.


In a medium bowl, add the carrot, pear and mixed salad leaves. Just before serving, drizzle with a little olive oil, add a squeeze of lemon juice and toss to coat.

TIP: Toss the salad just before serving to keep the leaves crisp.


Divide the salad between bowls and top with the Thai roasted pumpkin. Drizzle over the peanut dressing and garnish with the roasted peanut & cashew mix. Serve with any remaining lemon wedges.

TIP: You can toss everything together if you prefer!
