Roasted pumpkin and chilli feta toast

Main Serves 1 30 min
Toast topped with a delicious trio of salty feta, sweet roast pumpkin and hot chilli. This is a quick lunch or light supper dish with a side of crisp green salad.

Ingredients

  • 120g pumpkin, peeled and diced
  • olive oil
  • 50g feta cheese
  • ¼ tsp dried chilli flakes
  • ¼ tsp dried herbs - use oregano, marjoram or mixed herbs
  • 1 large piece of toast (sourdough is good)
  • salad leaves, to serve

Method

Prep time: 10 min
Cooking time: 20 min
  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 190°C/Gas 5. Toss the pumpkin in olive oil in a baking dish, and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, until soft and just turning golden.
  • Step 2

    While the pumpkin is cooking, place the feta on a piece of foil in a small baking dish. Wrap the sides of the foil up to surround the cheese.
  • Step 3

    In a small bowl, mix the chilli flakes, dried herbs and 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Pour over the feta and bake in the oven for 10 minutes (or grill for about 5 minutes).
  • Step 4

    Mash the pumpkin with a fork, spread over the toast and spread over the feta, drizzling over any juices from the foil. Serve with salad leaves.
