SW recipe: Provençal vegetables with pesto

Ready in 50 minutes 

Serves 4


  • 3 medium red onions, peeled cut into wedges
  • 500g beetroot, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 3 large courgettes, thickly sliced
  • 400g can artichoke hearts, drained and halved
  • 150g cherry tomatoes
  • 400g can green lentils, drained and rinsed
  • 40g fresh basil leaves
  • 15g pine nuts
  • 1 large garlic clove, crushed
  • Finely grated zest and juice of ½ small unwaxed lemon
  • 4 level tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese or vegetarian alternative


Preheat your oven to 220c/fan 200c/gas 7.

Put the onions, beetroot, courgettes, salt and pepper in a very large, non-stick deep-sided baking tray or roasting tin. Add 3 tbsp water, toss well and spread out in an even layer.

Slide into the oven and roast for 30 minutes, turning the vegetables occasionally and adding a splash more water if needed.

Remove the tray from the oven, add the artichoke hearts, cherry tomatoes and lentils and turn the vegetables over to mix.

Spread out once more, return to the oven and roast for a further 8-10 minutes or until the vegetables are tender and the artichokes and lentils have heated through.

To make the pesto, put the basil, pine nuts, garlic, lemon zest and juice plus 8 tbsp water into a food processor and blend to a paste. Stir in the cheese and salt to taste. Drizzle the pesto over the vegetables to serve.

Ultimate Slimming Tips!

Slimming Tip 1 – Don’t go hungry
If you are hungry you need to eat. Depriving your body of food will just see you miserable and maybe even grabbing the high fat, high sugar foods instead. And that’s really not going to help.

Slimming Tip 2 – Fill up on Super Slimming Foods 
Now no food has the power to actually slim you down, but the foods with the least calories for the most amount of filling power will cut your calorie intake without you even realising.
These foods what to take priory over other foods, by filling your plate with at least 1/3 of the Super Slimming Foods will see the lbs literally drop off.

Slimming Tip 3 – Plan Plan Plan
Fail to plan is planning to fail. Make a solid plan not only for the foods and meal you are going to enjoy but also what might get in your way. If you know you have a night out, that’s fine, just plan… What food will you order? What drinks will you order? And stick to your plan for amazing weight losses.
