This is one of those recipes that is so simple, it barely deserves a set of instructions. Perfect for a mid-week dinner panic, all you need is some goat’s cheese, red onions and half a small pumpkin. Cheap, simple, healthy and delicious. If you’re really hungry, you could even serve this with some pearl barley or cous cous. I’m always excited when I find recipes that manage to make cheap and seasonal ingredients like onions and pumpkin into an enticing meal, so I hope you enjoy this one.
