Preheat the oven to 190°C.

Line a baking tray with some baking paper. Toss the pumpkin, olive oil, honey, garlic, chili flakes and cinnamon together. Season with a bit of salt and pepper.

Wrap a strip of bacon around each piece of pumpkin. Place it on the lined baking tray and bake for 25-30 minutes until tender. Scatter the goat’s cheese on top and add some basil leaves or micro herbs.

TIP: For an extra bit of crunch scatter 30ml (2 tbsp) of toasted sesame seeds, sunflower seeds or some finely chopped nuts over the cooked pumpkin.

TIP: If you find that it is too spicy to your liking, then serve each portion with a dollop of Greek yoghurt, sour cream or cultured cream. This brings down the heat and adds a lovely creaminess to the veggies.
