Ingredients

  • 1kg kipfler or creamy brushed potatoes
  • 2 red capsicums, seeded, quartered
  • 1/2 cup coriander leaves
  • 1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1/2 cup mint leaves
  • 2 tbs coarsely chopped oregano
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1/4 cup (40g) pine nuts, toasted
  • 1/3 cup (25g) finely grated parmesan
  • 1 tbs red wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) olive oil
  • 2 chorizo sausages, thinly sliced diagonally
  • 250g vine-ripened cherry tomatoes
  • 120g pkt Coles Australian Baby Rocket

Method

STEP 1

Place the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil over high heat. Cook for 10 mins or until just tender. Drain well.

STEP 2

Meanwhile, heat grill on high. Place capsicum, skin-side up, on a baking tray. Cook under the grill for 5-7 mins or until skin blackens and blisters. Transfer to a heatproof bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Set aside for 5 mins to cool slightly (this helps lift the skin). Peel and thinly slice.

STEP 3

Place the coriander, parsley, mint, oregano, garlic, pine nuts, parmesan and vinegar in a food processor and process until finely chopped. With the motor running, add the oil in a thin, steady stream until well combined. Season the pesto.

STEP 4

Heat a chargrill on medium-high. Cut potatoes in half lengthways. Spray with olive oil spray. Cook for 2 mins each side or until lightly charred. Transfer to a plate. Cook the chorizo and tomatoes, turning, for 2 mins or until the chorizo is golden and tomatoes begin to collapse.

STEP 5

Combine potato, chorizo, capsicum, rocket and 2 tbs pesto in a large bowl. Arrange on a serving platter. Top with tomatoes. Drizzle with remaining pesto. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Serve with oregano leaves. 

Get ahead: Make the pesto up to 1 day ahead. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
