Unfortunately, this week's butter beans were in short supply, so we've replaced them with lentils. Don't worry, the recipe will be just as delicious!

• Preheat oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. • Cut carrot and zucchini into bite-sized chunks. • Place prepped veggies on a lined oven tray. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and toss to coat. Roast until tender, 20-25 minutes. • Meanwhile, finely chop garlic. Finely chop celery. Roughly chop tomato. Thinly slice silverbeet. Drain the lentils (see ingredients).
• On a second lined oven tray, place grated Parmesan cheese in even circles to make two per person. • Bake until golden and crisp around the edges, 6-8 minutes (these can burn fast, so keep an eye on them!).
TIP: If your oven tray is getting crowded, bake the Parmesan crisps in batches.
TIP: The Parmesan crisps will crisp up as they cool.
• In a large saucepan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook celery, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, 2-3 minutes. • Add tomato paste and garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds. • Add tomato, the water, garlic & herb seasoning, vegetable stock powder, the butter, and brown sugar. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, 3-4 minutes. • Add silverbeet, lentils and roast veggies and continue to simmer, until silverbeet has wilted, 1-2 minutes. Season with pepper.
• Divide Tuscan roast veggie and lentil soup between bowls. • Top with basil pesto and Parmesan crisps to serve.
