Simple summer traybake
TIME 40 minutes


2 red onions, cut into slim wedges
200g baby mushrooms, halved
2 courgettes, halved and sliced into 1cm pieces
400g cherry tomatoes
1 x 400g tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 ½ tablespoon balsamic vinegar
150g sourdough, torn into bitesize pieces

For the salsa verde:
2 large handfuls coriander, roughly chopped + extra to serve
1 large handful basil, roughly chopped + extra to serve
2 tablespoons capers
2 garlic cloves, grated
1 lime, juiced
5 tablespoons olive oil
1 ½ tablespoon maple


Preheat oven to 200C fan.

Put the onions, mushrooms, courgettes, cherry tomatoes, chickpeas into a large roasting tin (ours was around 30 x 25cm). Drizzle over 2 tablespoons of oil, season and toss so everything is coated. Roast for 20 minutes until the vegetables have softened.

Toss the vegetables so they cook evenly. Mix the bread with 1 tablespoon olive oil and balsamic vinegar and scatter on top of the vegetables. Return to the oven and bake for a further 10 minutes, until the vegetables are golden and tender and bread is crisp.

Meanwhile make the salsa verde by putting all the ingredients into a mini chopper or blender and blitz until you have a green sauce.

Serve the traybake with the sauce drizzled over the top along with some extra herbs on top.
