The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.

Preheat your oven to 200°C. Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (no need to peel). Halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Chop into roughly 3cm pieces. Trim the courgette then halve lengthways. Slice widthways into 2cm wide slices. Halve and peel the red onion. Slice each half into 4 wedges. Peel and thinly slice the garlic. Drain the halloumi then cut it into 3 slices per person. Place them into a small bowl of cold water and leave to soak.


Pop the potatoes and onion onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper then sprinkle over the oregano. Toss to coat then spread out in a single layer. TIP: Use two trays if necessary. When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 30-40 mins. Turn hlafway through.


Meanwhile, pop the pepper, courgette and garlic onto another baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper then toss to coat. After 5 mins of roasting time, pop the courgette and pepper tray onto the middle shelf of the oven and roast until tender, 25-30 mins. Turn halfway through.


While the veg is roasting, pop the fresh pesto into a small bowl and add the olive oil (see ingredients for amount). Mix it together - it should be drizzling consistency. TIP: Add less or no oil if you'd rather it was less oily.


When 5 mins of roasting time remain, remove the halloumi slices from the cold water. Pop them onto a plate lined with kitchen paper and pat them dry. Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat. Once hot, add the halloumi and fry until golden, 2-3 mins each side.


When everything is ready, share the roasted potatoes and vegetables between your plates. Lay the halloumi slices on top and finish by drizzling the pesto all over. Enjoy!
