Summer Vegetable Side Dish

Carrot & Courgette ribbons with pesto

Ingredients to serve 4

  • 250g large carrots, scraped and trimmed
  • 250 g medium sized courgettes trimmed
  • 2 tsp pesto, salt and freshly ground pepper


  • Cut the carrots and courgettes into long, fine strands or ribbons by drawing a swivel-bladed peeler down the length of them
  • Pour 1 cm boiling water into a saucepan
  • Cover the pan and steam carrots over a moderate heat 2/3 minutes
  • Add courgettes and cook for 1-2 minutes longer (courgettes cook quickly so don't let them become waterlogged)
  • Drain
  • Transfer the vegetable to a bowl, add the pesto, mix well and serve at once.

Pesto Sauce

  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 oz pine nuts or cashew nuts
  • 6 tables finely chopped basil leaves
