Ever wondered what to do with leftover roast veggies? Roast pumpkin is delicious on open sandwiches the next day, and goes beautifully with cheese and herbs.

Ingredients (serves 1)

  • 2 slices Bread of choice (I use olive sourdough)
  • 2 tsp Pesto
  • 1 tsp Butter
  • 60g Haloumi cheese (thickly sliced)
  • 2-4 pieces Roast pumpkin (leftovers)


  1. Lightly toast bread in toaster and spread on pesto.
  2. Pan fry the haloumi in butter until golden brown (approx 2-3 mins each side). Place cheese slices on top of bread.
  3. Top with leftover roast pumpkin and enjoy!!


Next time you roast pumpkin, sprinkle some cinnamon and sea salt on top before you pop it in the oven. Absolutely moorish!!
