  • Pre heat the oven to 220°C, fan 190°C, gas 7
  • Cut into chunks of a similar size so that they cook evenly.
  • Spread out all the vegetables onto a large roasting dish.
  • Add the whole, unpeeled cloves of garlic. Then add the olive oil and turn the vegetables to coat them.
  • Roast for about 30-40 minutes, until beginning to colour at the edges (not soggy.) Turn the vegetables over half way through and to let the steam out of the oven.
  • Remove the tray from the oven and season with pepper. When cool, squeeze the roasted garlic from the skins, chop and mix back into the roasted vegetables.
  • Strain well keeping the roasted vegetable oil.
  • Place the pine nuts on a tray and bake until lightly browned, but not burnt. Then cool.
  • This will increase their flavour.
  • Place the shallots, garlic, pepper, coriander, cheese, chilli and salt into a food processor.
  • Mix the roasted veg oil with the sunflower oil then add half the oil and blitz until fairly smooth,
  • Gradually add the oil until you have a thickish sauce, add more or less oil until you get the right consistency.
  • Spoon into a bowl, taste and adjust with salt and pepper, sometimes a squeeze or two of lemon brings out the flavour.
  • Mix the chickpea flour with the egg, beer and chives to a smooth batter.
  • Heat the oil in a medium sized non-stick frying pan.
  • Add a good ladle of batter and swirl around the pan covering completely.
  • Return the pan to the heat and cook until small bubble appear on top, say 2-3 minutes.
  • Flip over and cook for a further minute or so.
  • Repeat until all mixture has been used.
  • Serve the pancakes warm, topped with roasted veg tossed in the coriander pesto.
