3.Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 10-15 minutes or until golden.

4.While the veggies are cooking, prepare your sandwiches.

5.Start by slicing the bread, spread the pesto in one side and the mayonnaise in the other.

6.Continue with your greens and add the sprinkle the chopped spring onions.
