Pumpkin Mash and Steak

 

 

_DSC3074

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.

Ingredients  

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

 

Method

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.

 

Notes

This dish serves 2

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