Broccolini and Honey Pumpkin Salad

… super simple veggie dish…

Serves 2


250gr pumpkin pieces (M&S sells pumpkin pieces readily cut into squares for those of us who are too lazy to buy and whole pumpkin and chop it up ourselves)

200gr broccolini (it’s kind of like broccoli, but with smaller florets and longer thin stalks… personally, i think broccolini tastes better for this dish as it is more delicate)

2 tbsp of sunflower seeds

Olive oil

1 clove of garlic

1 tbsp honey

1 tbsp soy sauce

Salt and pepper to taste


Bring water to the boil in a medium saucepan. Once boiling, bring the heat down and add the pumpkin pieces. Cook until tender and then drain and set aside.

Wash and chop the broccolini into smaller pieces as desired. Chop the garlic clove into fine pieces.

Heat olive oil in a pan and add the garlic, broccolini, honey and soy and fry for approx. 2 minutes. Add the cooked pumpkin pieces and sunflower seeds and fry for a further minute (until brown and seeds are toasted). Enjoy!
