  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Put all the vegetables, except the chicory and celery leaves, in a large, non-stick roasting tin. Pour over 2 tbsp olive oil and season. Mix everything and spread into a single layer. Bake for around 45 mins, tossing once or twice, until the vegetables are tender and beginning to turn golden.

  2. Meanwhile, make the pesto. Pop the parsley, cashew nuts and garlic in a food processor. Blitz until quite smooth. Stir in the olive oil, lemon juice, Parmesan and some seasoning. Adjust the thickness with a little more olive oil, if you like.

  3. Heat a griddle pan. Rub the steaks with the remaining oil and season. Cook on each side for around 4 mins for medium, or to your liking, adjusting the time depending on the thickness of the steaks. Rest the steaks, covered, for 5 mins.

  4. Toss the chicory and celery leaves together with roasted roots. Serve alongside the steaks and spoon a generous dollop of pesto on top.

What, no chips? was the reaction from my family. The pesto was nice, if a little dry, maybe I should have added more oil. The roasted veg mix was ok (actually I couldn't get a celeriac so substituted other veg), the chicory made it quite bitter. It was ok, just.
