Spicy Sage and Walnut Pumpkin Bowl

Spicy Sage and Walnut Pumpkin Bowl

This Spicy Sage and Walnut Pumpkin Bowl by Harriet of @natural_harry is the perfect dish for a cosy autumn day.

This recipe may look simple, and it is, but don’t be fooled. The flavours pack a punch! We love the warming hint of spice in the pumpkin contrasted with the creamy avocado and crunchy, salty pumpkin seeds. So good!

The recipe calls for butternut pumpkin (or squash) but you could use any kind. Any kind of greens you have growing at the moment will do too!

Serves 2
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes

Smashing Pumpkin:

  • 1 kg pumpkin, peeled and diced, seeds saved and rinsed
  • ¼ cup (10g) sage leaves, stalks removed
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast


  • 1 cup (100g) beetroot, grated
  • 1 medium avocado, halved and peeled
  • 1 cup (20g) rocket

To Serve:

  • 2 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tbsp bean sprouts
  • 1 tbsp walnuts
  • 1 tsp dukkah (optional)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 200°C/392°F fan forced.
  2. Rinse pumpkin seeds and toss in a little tamari. Spread on a baking paper lined tray and roast for 15 minutes or until crispy and golden brown. Great for snacking on while you cook the rest!
  3. Line another baking tray with baking paper. Spread pumpkin, sage, chilli, nutritional yeast, garlic cloves and coconut aminos on the tray. Toss and bake for 30 minutes.
  4. Roll avocado halves in sesame seeds and assemble all salad ingredients in a bowl.
  5. When the pumpkin is done transfer to a bowl and lightly mash. Add to the serving bowls with the salad ingredients and finish with coconut aminos, bean sprouts and roasted pumpkin seeds. Enjoy!
