Pork Chops with Warm Roast Pumpkin, Spinach and Feta Salad

  • Easy

A great meat and salad combo walks the line between fresh and exciting. Yeah, it's gotta be plumped up with the good stuff, but if you scrimp on the exciting bits, you're not making friends. This one has the balance right with thrillingly tender pork, caramelised pumpkin and salty feta, offset of course, by plenty of leaves and handfuls of nutty chickpeas.




Roast Pumpkin

Preheat oven to 200°C fan-forced. Peel and cut pumpkin into 1cm-thick pieces. Pick sage leaves from their stems. Place pumpkin, sage leaves, 20ml (1 tablespoon) oil and a sprinkle of salt on a lined tray. Toss to coat, spread into a single layer and roast for 25–30 minutes or until pumpkin is cooked through and caramelised. While pumpkin is cooking, continue with step 2.



Make Dressing

Add vinegar, mustard, honey, 20ml (1 tablespoon) oil, salt and pepper to a bowl and mix to combine.



Drain Chickpeas

Drain chickpeas and rinse under cold water.



Cook Pork Chops

Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a medium frypan over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook, turning halfway, for 5–6 minutes or until golden and just cooked. Place on a plate, cover with foil and rest for 5 minutes.



Finish Salad

Remove pumpkin from oven and cool slightly. Carefully fold chickpeas through pumpkin. Cut pork off the bone and into thick slices.



Plate Up

Crumble feta over pumpkin and fold through the spinach. Drizzle with dressing. Divide salad between plates and top with pork.
