    • Total time: 1 hour 20 minutes 5 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 6 green peppers, deseeded and quartered
    • 1 large fennel bulb, trimmed and thinly sliced
    • 150ml Waitrose 100% Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil, plus 2 tbsp 50g blanched almonds

    • 4 plump cloves garlic, roughly chopped
    • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar

    3. Pour in the vinegar and add a sprinkling of salt. With the machine running, gradually pour in the oil to form a loose paste. Scrape into a small bowl and serve with the roasted vegetables.
