Cut the pumpkin into 3cm cubes and the red onion into chunky wedges. Spread on a lined baking tray, coat with some olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook in oven for approximately 30 mins until pumpkin is tender. img_2402

While the pumpkin is cooking, combine mushrooms and butter in a saucepan and cook down. Season with salt and pepper and a teaspoon of balsamic glaze. Set aside.img_2327

Heat a griddle pan and cook lamb steaks to your liking. Three to four minutes each side will give you a medium steak. Once cooked, transfer to a plate and cover with aluminium foil to rest for 5-10 minutes. Once rested, cut the lamb into thin slices.

Prepare salad:

Combine rocket, pumpkin, red onion, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes and asparagus in a bowl. Drizzle with a small amount of olive oil (using some of the oil from the sundried tomatoes gives a great flavour) and balsamic glaze and toss the salad to ensure coated. Add half of your sliced lamb steak to the salad and toss through.
