Vegetable oil, for brushing
1 beef tomato, cored, deseeded and chopped
2cm piece fresh root ginger, grated
1 clove of garlic, crushed
Zest and juice of 1 lime
1 tbsp Sarson’s Malt Vinegar, plus extra for dressing

Preheat the oven to 190C/gas 5. Place the wedges into a roasting tin and dress with the vegetable oil, salt and pepper. Bake for 25-30 mins, until golden and fluffy.

Serve the pumpkin wedges, dressed with Sarson’s vinegar, with the salsa and sour cream.
