    1kg pumpkin flesh, cut into 2.5cm chunks
    2 red onions, cut into wedges
    2½ tbsp olive oil
    1 tsp cumin seeds
    1 tsp hot smoked paprika

    2. Scoop ½ the pumpkin and onions into a container (leaving the cheese in the tin) and set aside to cool, then cover and chill to use in the patties recipe (right). Remove the garlic and squeeze out of its skin into a small bowl. Mash with a fork, then whisk in the lemon zest and juice, capers and remaining ½ tbsp oil. Tip the kale into the pumpkin tin, drizzle over the dressing and stir before dividing between 2 plates.
