Warm Lamb, Pumpkin & Feta

This is a yummy warm winter salad - great for lunch or dinner. Make sure you choose the low fat feta listed.

 Ok before or after 3pm 

Ingredients

  • ½ pumpkin cubed
  • 100g Mainland Special Reserve Feta Cheese (low fat)
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • 4 strips lean lamb fillet
  • 3 cups fresh baby spinach leaves
  • Balsamic
  • Sprig Fresh Rosemary/li>
  • Teaspoon fresh virgin olive oil to drizzle over each plate of spinach leaves

Instructions

  1. Cube the pumpkin. Cut up 100g Feta cheese into small cubes.
  2. Give the pumpkin a precook in the microwave for 4 mins, with a little water under gladwrap. Then pop onto a baking dish/tray with a little bit of the balsamic drizzles over. Pop in pre-heated oven (170/180 degrees celcius).
  3. Cut up the rosemary with scissors and then roll the lamb fillets in it. Then give a non-stick fry pan a little light spray with olive oil, turn to medium heat and lightly cook the lamb. Allow to rest 5 mins in pan with heat off. Should be pink and juicy.
  4. Meanwhile add the feta cheese and pumpkins seeds to the oven on a baking tray. Drizzle a little balsamic over the feta and lightly spray the pumpkin seeds with the extra virgin olive oil so they toast as they cook.
