Roasted potato pesto salad


Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.

In a large bowl, toss together the potatoes and oil. Place on a baking tray and roast for 20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes. Add the capsicum and roast for 20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes, until the potatoes are tender and the peppers are roasted.

Place pine nuts in a small fry pan and gently toast over low heat until golden brown. In a food processor (fitted with a metal blade), puree the toasted pine nuts, parsley, garlic, miso, and lemon juice. Slowly add the olive oil and process until smooth. Add salt and set aside.

Transfer roasted vegetables into a large bowl and add just over half a cup of pesto. Stir well and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve at room temperature.

Store any remaining pesto for up to 2 weeks by covering with a film of olive oil in a tightly sealed container and refrigerating.
