Utensils

Instructions 

GET PREPPED

1. Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Slice the peeled pumpkin into 2 cm cubes.  TIP: Chopping the pumpkin into small cubes ensure it cooks in the allocated time. Slice the red onion into thin wedges.

ROAST THE VEGGIES

2. Place the pumpkin and red onion on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Drizzle with olive oil and 2/3 of the honey and sprinkle with the dried oregano and chilli flakes (if using)TIP:Some like it hot but if you don’t, just hold back on the chilli flakes. Season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper and toss to coat. Place on the top rung of the oven and cook for 25 minutes, or until tender.

MARINATE THE PORK

3. While the veggies are cooking, peel and finely grate the garlic. In a large bowl, combine the pork loin, garlic, a drizzle of olive oil, the remaining honey and a pinch of salt and pepper. Rub to coat the pork and set aside to marinate while the veggies cook. TIP: The longer you allow the pork to marinate, the stronger the flavour will be.

ROAST THE PORK

4. When the veggies have about 10 minutes remaining, remove the oven tray and sprinkle over the pepitas. Add the marinated pork loin to the same tray and place back in the oven to cook for the remaining time, or until the vegetables are golden and the pork is cooked through. TIP:It’s okay to serve pork slightly blushing pink in the centre. Transfer the pork to a large plate, cover with foil and set aside to rest for a few minutes. Slice the pork into 2 cm thick strips.

TOSS EVERYTHING TOGETHER

5. Place the roasted veggies into a large mixing bowl and crumble in the fetta. Add the baby spinach leaves and the sliced pork and toss to combine. Season to taste with a pinch of saltand pepper.
