Roasted vegetables with feta and pesto

This recipe is exactly as the title suggests – vegetables roasted in the oven with feta and pesto stirred through. It’s pretty simple to make, but feels really quite indulgent. Amazingly, the roasted cauliflower is one of the tastiest vegetables I’ve eaten. Usually I find cauliflower pretty underwhelming, but accidentally adding it to this dish resulted in a bit of a revelation.

You don’t need to stick to the exact same vegetables, just use whatever you’ve got in the fridge – putting the harder, root veg in first, followed by the fleshier, thinner ones fifteen minutes later.
