"45 Minutes"




Roast Pumpkin

Preheat oven to 200°C fan-forced. Cut pumpkin into large wedges and place on a large, lined baking tray. Sprinkle with 3 teaspoons Tex Mex Mix Tape blend, drizzle with vegetable oil, and season with salt and pepper. Rub mixture over pumpkin and roast for 30 minutes or until tender.



Cook Rice, Add Beans

Meanwhile, place rice and 310ml (1 1⁄4 cups) water in a medium saucepan over medium heat and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Drain mixed beans and stir through rice. Set aside.



Prepare Ingredients

Crush garlic. Zest and juice 1⁄2 the lime. Place lime juice, zest and garlic in a bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to let the lime juice cook the garlic slightly. Pick coriander leaves from their stems and set aside.



Make Chipotle Mayo

Place vegan mayonnaise and chipotle chilli in adobo in a bowl, season with salt and pepper and mix to combine.



Add Coriander

Roughly chop most of the coriander, reserving some to serve. Add to rice with remaining Tex Mex Mix Tape Blend, garlic and lime juice mixture. Mix well and set aside.



Plate Up

Cut remaining lime into wedges. Divide rice between bowls and top with pumpkin, pepitas, reserved coriander, chipotle mayo and lime wedges.
