Buy tiny jars of pesto. There's lots of different types - classic basil and pine nut, roasted aubergine/eggplant, roasted red pepper/capsicum and almond, sundried tomato...

You put together a quick, pesto-flavoured bite in one of two ways - coat and cook chicken or fish, or spread onto wholemeal bread or crackers.

  • Pesto Mozarella Melts
    Spread pesto onto a wholegrain cracker.
    Top with a slice of mozarella cheese.
    Zap in microwave for about 20 seconds.

  • Pesto Cheese Kebabs
    Spread a slice of slightly stale wholemeal bread with pesto.
    Dice, and put onto a skewer with a cube or two of haloumi cheese.
    Grill or fry.
    Add a squeeze of lemon before serving if desired.

  • Pesto fish/chicken
    Buy small, thin fillets of white fish, salmon, or diced chicken.
    Spread with pesto.
    Grill, fry, bake, microwave.
