  1. Preheat oven to 425F
  2. Cut pumpkin in half and scoop out seeds. Cut into ¾ inch wedges ( eave skin on) and toss with olive oil, salt and pepper, and place on a parchment-lined backing sheet and roast in the oven until fork tender, about 20 minutes.
  3. Note: You can make maple glazed pecans at the same time. Toss any amount of pecans in REAL (it must be real) maple syrup, so they are nicely coated. Place on a greased baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper and roast in the oven, 15- 20 minutes, giving a stir halfway through. Let roast until they just darken slightly. Remove from oven, and using a metal spatula, loosen, let cool 5-10 minutes, loosen and scrape up again. Let cool completely. Store in an air tight container.
  4. In a large bowl, add rice, kale, apple, scallions, pecans, and dried cranberries and give a stir.
  5. Add vinaigrette ingredients and toss.
  6. Spread out on a platter and tuck warm roasted pumpkin wedges over top.
  7. Add goat cheese or farmers cheese if you like (feta may be too salty)
