If you have neither a vented blender or an immersion blender, you may want to allow the roasted vegetables to cool slightly before attempting to blend in a regular blender. Hot stuff in a blender will build up pressure and could result in a hot explosion and subsequent injury!
If you don’t have Pesto Sauce mix, you can roast veggies with just salt, pepper and olive oil and use a prepared pesto in the final step. You may need more than 2 Tbsp of prepared pesto (or a homemade pesto) to achieve the desired basily, garlicky flavour!
Serve with cheesy garlic toast or Nana’s Cheese Tea Biscuits! It’s a family favourite!
If you want to make it even more hearty so you get a fully balanced meal out of it, add 1 cup of cooked (or canned and rinsed) white beans before pureeing! Blast it all with the high powered blender and you’ll have an even creamier soup loaded with protein too!
