If I had to pick one way to cook vegetables from everything I know, this would be the one. I bake them in the oven. With herbs and good olive oil. I\'ve cooked this many times and it still surprises me every time: I do literally nothing but some amazing food comes out. Nobody is able to stop before the very last piece is gone. The recipe is so simple that It is even embarrassing.
I take eggplants, sweet peppers, red onions and potatoes because these are my favorite vegetables• The thing here though is that you pick those YOU like.
Peel and core the vegetables and cut them into large pieces (whichever shape you prefer). Place them into a baking tray so that there is not too many layers. Season with salt, white pepper, olive oil and dry herbs (I used thyme here, rosemary and basil would also do perfectly).
Place the tray into a 200°C oven (use the grill function if your oven supports it) for 20 minutes. Take the tray out, turn the vegetables and move them around. Put the tray back into the oven for another 20 minutes.
The vegetables are perfect to garnish meat of fish. However I always end up eating them on their own right from the baking dish and with my hands (excuse me for the details).
