    Bake for 45 minutes at 180C or until vegetables are just tender.

  • Saffron Aioli:

  • 1.

    Place the warm sherry, saffron threads and cayenne pepper in a small bowl and let infuse for five minutes. Whisk the egg yolks and gradually add in the olive oil in a thin stream whilst whisking all the time until it emulsifies into a mayonnaise.

  • 3.

    Add the sherry / saffron mix and whisk.

  • 4.

    Adjust seasoning.

  • 5.

    Store in the fridge until ready to serve (covered or it will form a skin on top).


The aioli is great flavoured with pesto, garlic, anchovies, chilli or even olives – have a play with the flavours.
