I never realised that making mash from grilled pmpkin would taste delicious. Instead of boiling pumpkin to make your mash, grill the pumpkin for a tastier flavour. I seasoned my steak with Moroccan spices and roasted baby tomatoes and added spinach.
2 cups chopped pumpkin
2 scotch beef fillets
1 tbsp olive oil
Olive oil spray
10 baby tomatoes
Handful of spinach
1 tsp Moroccan spices
Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Layer a sheet aluminum foil on a baking tray, place pumpkins on the foil and season with salt and pepper. Fold the foil to make a parcel and place in the oven. Bake for 25 minutes.
Ten minutes into your pumpkin cooking time. add the tomatoes on the baking tray and cook for a further 15 minutes.
Once pumpkin is ready add ½ a tsp of olive oil and mash the pumpkin.
Season the steak with ½ a tsp of oil, salt, pepper and Moroccan spices. Add a grill pan on a high heat. Once pan is hot, spray with olive oil.
Add the steak on the grill and cook for 3-4 minutes or to your liking.
On a plate, place spinach, mash and steak with the tomatoes.

If you are worried about the steak being raw or burning reduce the heat to medium high.
