Recipes - Sicilian Pumpkin, Pecorino, Spezie & Baby Spinach Salad
If you can't find pecorino cheese, you can use a fresh parmesan or other grana padano cheese.
1/4 of a Crown pumpkin
3 Tablespoons of Ground's Spezie
1 bunch of baby spinach
juice of ½ a lemon
½ cup of extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper
Cut the pumpkin into large bite-sized pieces. Coat them in olive oil and then 2 tablespoons of the Spezie. Bake in a hot oven until tender. Wash the spinach and place on a serving platter. Place the pumpkin pieces on top of the spinach. Mix the lemon juice, olive oil and salt and pepper to make a dressing and drizzle over the pumpkin and spinach. Shave the pecorino over the top and finally sprinkle with the remaining Spezie.
