Colorful vegetables cook together on a sheet pan for this easy vegetarian dinner. Roasting intensifies the flavor. You can add any other vegetables to the pan. Use the ones in the recipe as a blueprint for the amounts.

Helpful Hints:

-- Look for feta cheese in one block instead of crumbled.

-- If your dried oregano is over 6 months old or gray-looking, it's time to buy a new one.


-- Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

-- Prepare ingredients.

-- Microwave potatoes.

-- Place ingredients on sheet pan and roast in the oven.

Shopping List:

To buy: 2 tomatoes, 1/2 pound red or yellow potatoes, 1 red onion, 1 bottle balsamic vinegar, 1 bottle dried oregano, 1 container minced garlic, 1 bunch broccoli florets, 1 block feta cheese (3 ounces needed) and 1 bunch cilantro.

Staples: olive oil



Recipe by Linda Gassenheimer

Olive oil spray

1/2 pound red or 1 yellow potatoes

2 medium tomatoes, sliced

1 cup red onion, sliced

1/4 pound broccoli florets cut in half (about 1 1/2 cups)

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

2 teaspoons dried oregano

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1/4 cup cilantro leaves on top

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with foil and spray with olive oil spray. Wash and do not peel potatoes. Cut potatoes into slices and then cut the slices into quarters. Place in a bowl and microwave on high for one minute. Place potatoes on the sheet pan. Place the tomatoes, onion, broccoli and feta cheese slices on the sheet pan in rows. Spray with olive oil spray. Mix olive oil, balsamic vinegar, oregano and garlic together. Spoon sauce over the vegetables and cheese. Place sheet pan in the oven for 15 minutes. Divide between two dinner plates and serve.
