Lightly stir with the whisk, until sauce thickens. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and fold in the parsley. Allow to simmer for a few minutes.
- Pour sauce over cooked vegetables in your serving dish and top with pine-nuts and any extra parsley.
Cooks tip! Broccoli or butternut can also be added to the roasting pan for extra veg. If you eat feta cheese or goat’s cheese, it is also great crumbled over the top. Parmesan cheese, grated is delicious over the top too.
