Veggie Bake...delish.

Here's the recipe I promised! Its a great way to incorporate a lot of vegetables into one dish. It's so colorful and the flavor combo is awesome!



  • 2 tbsp olive oil (divided)
  • 1 large sweet yellow onion cut in half and sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1-2 russet potatoes, unpeeled
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 yellow squash
  • 3 large Roma tomatoes
  • Sea salt, freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • Dried thyme, to taste
  • 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
Step 1.
Go ahead and prepare your veggies. I sliced them all about 1/4 inch thick.

Step 2.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Coat a baking dish with cooking spray. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the onions and saute until translucent...takes about 8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another 60 seconds. Spread the onion mixture on the bottom of the greased baking dish.

Step 3.
Layer your veggies alternately on top of the onions. You can fit a lot in there if you squeeze them in tight. (that also keeps the moisture in better.)
Season with salt, pepper, and thyme to taste. Drizzle the last tbsp. of olive oil over the veggies.

Step 4.
Cover with foil and bake for 35 min. or until the potatoes are tender. Uncover and sprinkle the parmesean cheese over top. Continue to bake another 25-30 min. or until browned. Enjoy!

Since we Aren't vegetarians in this house, I serve this with grilled chicken breats and salad. But it would make a fantastic vegetarian dish!

Let me know what you think!

Happy Thursday, friends! Almost the weekend!
