Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Heat your oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas 6. Halve your pumpkin and scoop out the seeds. Cut into 2 cm thick wedges (no need to peel). Trim the beetroot and cut into 10-12 wedges. Wrap the garlic in a square of foil.

  • 2.

    Tumble the pumpkin and beetroot wedges onto a baking tray. Drizzle over 1 tbsp oil and toss together with some seasoning. Nestle in the package of garlic. Slide into the oven to roast for 30 mins.

  • 3.

    Meanwhile, tip your beef strips into a bowl. Pour over 1 tbsp tamari, ½ tbsp oil and squeeze the juice from a clementine. Stir. Cover and pop in the fridge to marinate.

  • 4.

    Peel and finely grate the horseradish. Mix this with half the crème fraîche, a good crack of pepper and pinch of salt. Peel and thickly slice the onion. Drain and rinse the chickpeas.

  • 5.

    After the veg has roasted for 30 mins, take the garlic from the tray and put the veg back in the oven to continue roasting for 15 mins.

  • 6.

    Squeeze the garlic cloves from their skins. Add half to the horseradish crème fraîche. Juice the remaining clementine into a bowl. Whisk in the remaining garlic and tamari. Roughly chop the parsley leaves.

  • 7.

    Warm a deep frying pan or wok over a high heat. Tip in the beef strips and marinade. Fry for 3 mins till browned. Spoon into a clean bowl, leaving the marinade in the pan. Fry the onion in this for 5 mins.

  • 8.

    Throw in the chickpeas and cook for 2 mins. Add the roasted veg and beef strips and tumble together. Don’t worry if the pumpkin falls apart a bit. Pour over the garlic, clementine and tamari mix. Serve in warm bowls with a good dollop of the horseradish crème fraîche and a scattering of parsley.
