Preparation

Preparation

Chop your vegetables into 1-inch pieces.


Step 1

Preheat oven to 425. Arrange the eggplant, tomatoes, squash, onions and chickpeas on a baking sheet (it’s ok if it’s a little crowded). Drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper and oregano. Toss to coat, then bake for 25-30 minutes or until lightly golden brown.


Step 2

Remove from oven. While still on the baking sheet, drizzle vinegar over the veggies and toss with the minced garlic and a few pinches of red pepper flakes.


Step 3

Bake 5-10 minutes longer (or broil 1-2 minutes)… until the veggies are golden brown on the edges but still have somewhat of a bite).


Step 4

Remove from the oven and toss with sliced basil. Taste and adjust seasonings. Drizzle with a little bit more olive oil, if you like. Serve with a grain (or protein) of your choice (like quinoa).
