Round and round we go… with veggies!

before veggie roast

All of these vegetables in my refrigerator needed to use before they expired.

I looked at my usual  method of making roasted goodness but Pinterest has sparked my creativity lately =)

This recipe looked so easy and yummy that I couldn’t wait to give it a try.

I added a few ingredients from the original recipe found here.

I think the original name of this is called “Vegetable Tian” but I just called it yummy!

You will need:

  • 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
  • Package of pre-sliced portabella mushrooms (the chunky ones)
  • 3 large Roma tomatoes
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Dried thyme, to taste (I only had ground but it still came out good)
  • 1/2 cup of low fat Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup low fat tomato and basil feta cheese ( I added this because I’m just a cheesy kinda girl)


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

Slice the potatoes, zucchini, squash mushrooms (if they are not pre-sliced) and tomatoes in 1/4 inch thick slices. Layer them alternately in the dish on top of the onions, fitting them tightly into a spiral, making only one layer. Season with sea salt, black pepper and dried thyme, to taste. Drizzle the last tablespoon of olive oil over the top.

Cover the dish with tin foil and bake for 35 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Uncover and sprinkle the Parmesan and feta cheeses on top and bake for another 25-30 minutes or until browned.
