    • 1 garlic clove, crushed
    • 800g kent pumpkin (or similar), cut into 6 wedges, skin on

    Final Comments

    If you want to have this for work lunch, pack the salad and dressing separately (might need to cut the avocado when serving too. You may want to add 50g teriyaki toful or 95g cooked chickpeas and a tbs shredded nori to make it more filling.
