Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Toss the pumpkin in the oil, then sprinkle on the chilli powder, five-spice, 1 tsp black pepper and a pinch of salt, and mix well. Tip into a roasting tray in a single layer and cook for 25-30 mins until tender and starting to caramelise around the edges.

  2. About 5 mins before the pumpkin is cooked, heat a wok or large frying pan and add the broccoli plus 1-2 tbsp water. Cook for 2-3 mins, then add the bok choi, soy, vinegar and honey, and cook for a further 2-3 mins until the veg is tender. Add the lime juice, then divide between 2 plates with the pumpkin, coriander leaves and lime wedges.

Great recipe. I did not have tender stem broccoli so used small florets of larger broccoli. I probably overcooked it by putting the bok choi in too late, it takes a while to become tender. The pumpkin was lovely, though I was afraid it was going to be too spicy. I found that supermarkets seem to not be calling five spice, five spice anymore, so it was mixed spices, which was fine. It might also be good with mange a tout and even with sesame seeds sprinkled on at the end. Might try that later.

I'm looking forward to trying this but can I just point out that the recipe has a 'vegan' tag even though it contains honey which is not usually considered to be vegan. I'm going to try it replacing the honey with agave syrup - I'm sure it will still taste lovely.
