Ingredients

  • 2 red onions , cut into chunky wedges
  • 3 peppers , sliced (we used green, red and yellow)
  • 3 courgettes (about 600g), cut into batons
  • 5 tbsp olive oil
  • 200g brown basmati rice
  • small pack flat-leaf parsley
  • 85g cashew nuts
  • 1 garlic clove , crushed
  • 400g can chickpeas , drained and rinsed
  • 200g halloumi , cut into chunky cubes

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Put the red onions, peppers and courgettes in a large roasting tin, toss in 2 tbsp oil and season. (You may need to do this in 2 tins.) Pop in the oven and cook for 25 mins until the veg is tender and beginning to turn golden.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, cook the rice following pack instructions. Whizz together the parsley, cashew nuts, remaining oil, the garlic and seasoning to make a pesto. Stir the chickpeas and halloumi into the roasted veg and cook for 10 mins more. Fork the parsley pesto through the rice, spoon over the veg and serve.
