Method

Preheat oven to 190°C, 375°F, Gas 5. Place the pumpkin pieces onto a tray lined with baking paper. Spray lightly with oil and season lightly with white pepper and sea salt. Roast for 25-35 minutes, then allow to cool slightly. Layer the pumpkin, baby spinach leaves and walnuts in a serving bowl and toss gently with (clean) hands. Dot with the feta, then sprinkle over the juice of a lemon and a drizzle of honey (don’t overdo it, you don’t want a soggy salad).

Toast the walnuts quickly in dry hot pan if you wish, but take care not to burn them.
