Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Place the peeled & chopped pumpkin and sesame seeds on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Spread in a single layer and roast until tender, 20-25 minutes. Set aside until it's time to pack lunch.


While the pumpkin is roasting, finely chop the garlic. Thinly slice the carrot (unpeeled) into halfmoons. Cut the broccoli (see ingredients) into small florets and roughly chop the stalk. Roughly chop the coriander. Add the udon noodles (see ingredients) to the saucepan of boiling water and cook, stirring with a fork to separate the noodles, until just tender, 8 minutes. Drain and refresh under cold water.


While the noodles are cooking, slice the chicken breast into 1cm strips. In a large bowl, combine the Thai seven spice blend and a drizzle of olive oil. Add the chicken, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a high heat. When the oil is hot, cook the chicken, tossing, until browned and cooked through, 3-4 minutes (cook in batches if your pan is getting crowded). Transfer to a plate.


SPICY! The curry paste is hot, feel free to add less if you're sensitive to heat! Return the pan to a high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the garlic, carrot and broccoli and cook, stirring, until the garlic is fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add the Thai red curry paste (see ingredients) and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Reduce the heat to mediumhigh and add the coconut milk, soy sauce and brown sugar. Simmer until the veggies are just tender, 7-9 minutes. Add the udon noodles to the pan and stir through until heated, 1-2 minutes. Season to taste.


Divde the Thai red curry noodles between bowls. Reserve 2 portions of the chicken (about 1 cup) for lunch and place the remainder (plus any resting juices) on top the noodles. Garnish with the coriander.


When you're ready to pack lunch, slice the cucumber into half-moons. Slice the lemon into wedges. Divide the reserved chicken breast, roast pumpkin, cucumber, mixed salad leaves, crispy shallots, lemon and sweet chilli sauce packets between 2 containers. Refrigerate. At lunch, remove the sweet chilli sauce and drizzle over the salad. Toss to combine. Season to taste with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
