Ras-el hanout roasted pumpkin, chickpea and kale salad

It’s hardest to stay consistent and eat healthy when you’re crammed for time and busy, but I find that it’s the actual act of nourishing yourself and taking little blocks to pause that bring the best results to your creative output and efficiency

I’ve had lots of warm and healing soups at the start of this season so lunch today was a welcome change. I balanced out the meal with a mix of properties... pumpkin roasted in ras el hanout, and tossed in ghee with mushrooms, zucchini, chickpeas and greens. I topped this with crumbled feta and it was delish!

Ras el hanout is an amazing Moroccan spice mix of cumin, clove, coriander seed, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, dry ginger, peppercorns, turmeric... and a heap more! Squeeze a bit of lemon in when serving for a little extra tang.

Traditionally enjoyed in Sri Lanka as ‘kola kande’. I’ve had lots of requests to share this recipe.. so here it is, below!
