3.Toss the pumpkin in half the olive oil and season with half the salt. Place on a tray lined with baking paper.

4.Toss the chickpeas in the remaining olive oil and salt and place on a separate tray lined with baking paper.

5.Place the pumpkin and chickpeas in the oven and roast for about 30 minutes, tossing every 10 minutes until the pumpkin is soft and caramelised and the chickpeas are crisp.

6.Scatter the warm chickpeas with the cumin and paprika.
