Ingredients

Shallots

3 medium

Red pepper(s)

1 medium, halved, de-seeded and then each half quartered

Aubergine

1 medium, cut into small cubes

Courgette

1 medium, cut into chunky diagonals, then halved

Mushrooms

4 medium, breakfast or portobellini type

Olive Oil

3 teaspoons, use extra virgin)

Cherry Tomatoes

16 individual

Low Fat Spread

1 tablespoons

Pesto Sauce

1 tablespoons, level

Beef rump steak, raw

250 g, all visible fat removed

Basil, fresh

6 leaf/leaves

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 7/ 220ºC/fan 200ºC. Boil the kettle and put the shallots in a bowl. Pour boiling water over the shallots and leave while you prepare the rest of the vegetables, then peel the shallots and halve.
  2. Put the shallot halves, pepper, aubergine, courgette and mushrooms on a large baking tray, season well and drizzle with 2½ tsp of the olive oil. Roast for 25 mins or until charred and tender, adding the tomatoes for the last 10 mins. Meanwhile, mash the low fat spread with the pesto and set to one side.
  3. Just before you put the tomatoes in, start heating a griddle pan. Then rub the steaks with the remaining ½ tsp of oil and add to the hot pan. Griddle, turning once, until done to your liking (5–6 mins for medium rare beef). Season, place each steak on a warmed plate and let it rest.
  4. Divide the vegetables between the plates, then top the steaks with some of the pesto butter. Scatter the basil over and serve with any remaining pesto butter.
