Instructions and steps:
Step 1Preheat oven to 250°C. Spray pumpkin pieces with oil then roast for 20 minutes. While pumpkin is roasting, heat infused oil in a frying pan and add capsicum, spring onion greens, courgette and spinach, cooking gently until tender. Add basil to vegetables as they cook. Once tender-crisp, remove pan from heat and allow vegetables to cool a little.

Step 3Add cooled vegetables to egg mixture then pour over pumpkin in pan. Scatter feta on top and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden. Serve garnished with extra fresh basil (if using).
