For the Salad
  1. Weigh out the wild rice in to a large, lidded saucepan and pour over the boiling water.
  2. Cover and leave to simmer for 45 minutes.
  3. Peel and slice the onion.
  4. Scoop out the seeds and fibres from the centre of the pumpkin and cut the flesh away from the skin.
  5. Cut the pumpkin flesh in to bite sized pieces.
  6. Place the pumpkin and onion in a roasting tray and drizzle over the oil.
  7. Toss to coat everything in the oil then place in the oven to roast for 20 minutes.
  8. Slice the halloumi in to bite sized chunks.
  9. Make the dressing by blending all the ingredients listed to form a paste.
  10. Once the 20 minutes are up on the pumpkin, remove from the oven and add the halloumi to the tray.
  11. Give everything a good mix and return to the oven for a further 10 minutes.
  12. Once the time is up on the rice, remove from the heat and check the liquid level. Hopefully it all has been absorbed, but if not, drain off any excess.
  13. Stir through the spinach and pomegranate seeds and allow to heat through slightly using the residual heat from the pan.
  14. Once the roasted pumpkin and halloumi is ready, transfer this to the pan as well and stir.
  15. Pour in the salad dressing and again give everything a good mix before dividing between 2 bowls and enjoying.
