Borlotti beans have a creamy rich texture and nutty flavour that’s a perfect match with the honey-roasted pumpkin and anti-inflammatory hazelnuts. They’re also nutritious, being high in protein and fibre.


  • 1½ tbsp floral honey
  • 1½ tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp rosemary, coarsely chopped
  • 800g pumpkin, seeded, cut into wedges
  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 250g broccolini, trimmed
  • 400g can borlotti beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 head radicchio, trimmed, leaves torn
  • 2 tbsp lightly toasted hazelnuts, coarsely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Combine 1 tablespoon of the honey, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and the rosemary in a large bowl. Add pumpkin and toss to coat. Place on tray and roast for 30-40 minutes, until golden, turning halfway through the cooking time. 
  2. Meanwhile, for the dressing, combine the remaining honey and oil with the vinegar in a small bowl. Set aside. 
  3. Cook the broccolini in a saucepan of boiling water until just tender. Drain.
  4. Combine the pumpkin, broccolini, beans, radicchio and hazelnuts in a large bowl. Add the honey dressing and gently toss to combine. Season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
