Recipe: Oven Roasted Veggies with Feta

I love colorful food that’s easy and quick to make. Veggies are an integral part of every healthy diet and yet veggie dishes are often considered heavy maintenance due to prepwork or amount of waste. So, here’s one of my favorite recipes for lazy people that’s also super flexible (you can pick almost any vegetable you like) and takes no more than 10mins of prepwork! There are no exact measurements for this recipe since the amount of vegetables is determined by the size of your baking sheet and number of people to serve.

Some of my favorite veggies and feta cheese.

~ Ingredients ~
(serves 2-3 people for a main dish or 4-5 people as side)

  • 2 Red tomatoes
  • 2 Zucchini
  • 2 Medium-sized leeks
  • 15 Spring / baby potatoes
  • Feta cheese
  • Olive oil extra vergine
  • Rosemary and herbal salt
  • (Optional: diced bacon)

Preheat the oven at 220°C and start chopping your different vegetables. Cut the baby potatoes into even halves, bigger ones may be quartered. Make sure you’re not cutting other vegetables that contain more water, such as zuchchini / tomatoes / leek too thin, or they will dry out before the potatoes are done.

Spread all vegetable slices on your baking sheet (covered with baking paper) and coat with a generous amount of olive oil. Add rosemary and any flavor of herbal salt you prefer – I tend to either go with italian or provençale flavors. Use your bare hands to mix and “massage” the oil and herbs onto all your veggies.

Spread the vegetables evenly, making use of the entire size of your pan. Finally, sprinkle feta cheese to taste over everything and put in the pre-heated oven for approx. 25-30 minutes at 220°C. This dish is basically done whenever your potatoes are.

It’s omnom time!

Serves as a main vegetarian dish or side to any protein. I tend to go for a plate of purely veggies, sometimes with added bacon, and a spoonful of yoghurt or cottage cheese on top. Bon apétit!
