How to Make the Most of #Summer Veggies!
Whatever veggies you like — toss them with olive oil, salt and pepper, and grill. We had leeks, peppers, zucchini and also grilled slices of ciabatta bread. We also roasted some potatoes in the oven (because I thought they would take too long to grill). 450 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until crispy and brown on the edges.

Pulse until they’re well combined. Drizzle in olive oil and process until it becomes a thick paste. Taste and adjust seasonings.
