Pumpkin is a milder version of squash, and right now it's in season in the UK. Cook with it while you can because it makes a beautifully fragrant dish, and a fibrous main of any dish.

I've used pumpkin as the main feature of this veggie approved lunch or dinner time meal. My vegetarian sister gave it a massive thumbs up as she enjoyed the baked pumpkin, skin and all.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 35 minutes
Makes: 2 servings

Half a pumpkin
2 carrots
1 onion
1/2 tsp black pepper
Sprig of thyme
1 tsp mixed spice
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp tumeric
1 tblsp olive oil
1 cup of quinoa
1 tblsp raisins
1 tblsp salted butter
2cm chunk of cheddar cheese
2cm chunk of grana padano

Slice the pumpkin 'top' off by sticking the knife in the top of the pumpkin then remove by pulling the stem out.

Then slice a sizeable chunk out using a sharp knife.

Using a spoon 'scrape' the seeds out, and discard.

Place in a saucepan of boiling water, and par-boil for 10 minutes.

Remove from the saucepan and season with half of the black pepper, olive oil, mixed spice and thyme and place in the oven for 30 minutes at 180 degrees, gas mark 4.

Chop the ends off the carrots, and slice in half, down the middle.

Place the carrots in a saucepan of boiling water for 10 minutes.

Wash the quinoa and place in a saucepan of 2 cups of water, with the raisins and half of the paprika, black pepper, and tumeric.

Add the butter to the saucepan and cover with a lid over a simmering heat for 15 minutes.

Chop the onion and garlic roughly.

Place in a baking tray along with the rest of the seasoning and the carrots with the remaining olive oil. Place in the oven for 20 minutes at 180 degrees, gas mark 4.

Remove the vegetables from the oven and take the quinoa off the heat.

Plate up and grate the grana padano and cheddar on top of the quinoa.

This dish keeps well in a tupperware box, and is great if you want to take it to work. If so, add some sliced cherry tomatoes.

Put the entire dish in a tupperware container and either reheat (2 mins), or enjoy cold at work.
