  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 160°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Place the pumpkin halves, cut-side up, on the lined tray. Brush with 1 tbs oil and season. Bake for 1 hour or until just tender. Set aside to cool.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, heat a chargrill on medium. Spray the capsicum, zucchini and eggplant with olive oil spray. Cook for 2-3 mins each side or until lightly charred and tender. Add the asparagus and cook for 2 mins or until just tender.

  3. Step 3

    Heat the remaining oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Add the mushroom, onion and garlic and cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until tender. Season. Set aside for 5 mins to cool. Add parsley and fetta and toss to combine.

  4. Step 4

    Increase oven to 200°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Scoop out some of the pumpkin flesh, leaving a 2-3cm shell. Arrange eggplant, zucchini and capsicum in the pumpkin halves. Spoon over mushroom mixture. Top with the asparagus and press down gently.

  5. Step 5

    Carefully place the pumpkin halves together and tie with kitchen string to secure. Place on the lined tray. Lightly spray with olive oil spray. Bake for 20-30 mins or until tender. Set aside for 10 mins to cool.
