Roasted Mediterranean Vegetable Pesto

Whilst you can find some great vegan pestos out there, nothing beats homemade!  Combining the classic pesto ingredients with some roasted vegetables make this sauce a bit different.  It tastes great swirled into pasta, as a dip for crisps or potato wedges and is delicious as an extra burst of flavour in a sandwich, too.

  5. 100 ml olive oil
  6. 1 large handful fresh basil
  7. 2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed

Instructions
  1. Start by preheating the oven to 210 C fan. Chop the vegetables roughly and toss in some olive oil. Roast for 15-20 minutes.
