Thermobexta’s Sesame Roast Pumpkin Salad


No Thermomix necessary for this one! Even though it is used to make the dressing, those without can make it by simply crushing the garlic and shaking all ingredients vigorously in a jar.

400g pumpkin, peeled, deseeded and diced into 1.5-2cm cubes (peeled weight)
1-2 tbs macadamia oil (or oil of your choice)
salt and pepper
140g baby spinach
40g rocket
150g feta cheese, diced into 1cm cubes
1 avocado, peeled and diced
2 tomatoes, halved and sliced into wedges
50g sesame seeds

1 clove garlic
40g apple cider vinegar
30g tamari
30g sesame oil
30g raw honey


1. Preheat oven to 200°C (fan forced).

2. Place pumpkin on a lined tray and drizzle with oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove and set aside to cool.

3. Place sesame seeds in a small frying pan and toast until golden.

4. To make the dressing, place all dressing ingredients in mixer bowl. Blitz for 20 seconds/speed 8/MC on.

5. Into a large serving bowl, place the salad leaves then tomatoes, feta, avocado, cooled pumpkin and sesame seeds. Drizzle with dressing.

I often make a salad similar to this but the sesame seeds and dressing really took it to the next level. Delicious!

Yum, yum, yum. The sesame seeds are a great addition. Thus will be a regular dish in my house I think 🙂
