Serves 4


  • 700g pkt diced butternut pumpkin

  • 2 zucchini, ends trimmed, thinly sliced into ribbons
  • 12 (about 1kg) lamb cutlets, French-trimmed
  • 2 teaspoons sumac
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 400g can chickpeas, rinsed, drained
  • 100g baby rocket leaves
  • 100g marinated feta, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup (140g) Greek-style yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice



  1. Preheat oven to 200C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place the pumpkin on the tray and drizzle with 2 tsp of the oil. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine. Bake, turning occasionally, for 20 mins or until golden brown and tender.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat a chargrill on high. Brush zucchini with a little of the remaining oil. Cook for 1 min each side or until lightly charred.
  3. Combine the lamb cutlets, sumac and half the paprika in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Cook the lamb on the chargrill for 2 mins each side for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate, cover with foil and set aside for 5 mins to rest.
  4. Combine the vinegar, mustard and remaining oil in a screw-top jar. Shake to combine. Combine the pumpkin, zucchini, chickpeas and rocket in a large bowl. Drizzle with dressing and toss to combine. Divide among serving plates and sprinkle with the feta.
  5. Combine the yoghurt, lemon juice and remaining paprika in a bowl. Serve salad with the cutlets and the yoghurt mixture.
