The sweetness of the pumpkin goes perfect with the peppery bitterness of rocket and if you add some Graceburn cheese from the Blackwoods Cheese Company it is just perfection.
If you haven’t tried Blackwoods Cheese Company cheeses, you are missing out! I first found them in North Cross Road market in East Dulwich some months ago and I’ve been a fan ever since. Graceburn, the one I’ve use in this recipe , is a soft cow’s cheese and my favourite.
Soft cheese , like Graceburn or cheese curd.
How to :
Pre heat the oven to 190c.
Peel the pumpkin, cut it in cubes and place it on an oven tray. Add olive oil, honey and a pinch of salt. Mix everything well making sure all the pumpkin pieces have honey and oil.
Roast for 30/40 minutes or until you see the pumpkin is soft and with crispier edges.
Now it’s time to dress the rocket, for this salad I use a very simple and delicious dressing of olive oil , balsamic glaze and a pinch of salt. Add the pumpkin and cheese and it’s ready to enjoy!
