Do you use your oven?
You should! The oven is one of the easiest, hands off methods of cooking. Pop all the ingredients onto a sheet pan with or without oil, stick it in the oven for 30 minutes and you have a super tasty meal that was drama free.
This recipe is chock full of flavors, textures and colors. It’s my favorite way to use up veggies that are on their way out or to spice up some average veggies. The eggplant is divine cooked this way. The texture gets so silky and the combo of spices is so good.
