My Favorite Flavorful Baked Veggie Mix

by Mira

Delicious baked veggies recipe, with six veggies, feta cheese, olive oil, and no spices.

I love to cook but I don’t always get great results because I'm an incorrigible improviser. That said, once I discover a recipe that I’m particularly happy with, I’ll do it often. This is one of those recipes, and one which my mother has adopted as well, because it doesn’t require any spices. All you need are the veggies, olive oil, and feta cheese, and the result is very tasty.

I’ll admit the combo is not 100% mine. It came together from watching Jamie Oliver and other cooks on TV Paprika, our cooking channel. They inspired me to use fennel and beetroot together with the very common carrot and squash. Then I had to figure out whether to steam the veggies or not, and how long to keep them in the oven for perfect texture.

Recipe for My Favorite Veggie Mix


Prep time 25 min  -  Total time 60 min
Ingredients for 6 servings
1 large onion  • 1 head of garlic  • 4 medium carrots  • 2 squashes  • 1 small beet  • 1 fennel root  • 250 grams / 8.81 oz feta cheese  • 4 tbsp olive oil

1. Finely chop the garlic and onion. Start with the garlic, because it then needs several minutes for its major active component, allicin, to form.
2. Dice the remaining vegetables.
3. Sauté the onion and garlic for 30 seconds.
4. Add the other veggies to the skillet, cover the skillet, and let the veggies steam for 5 minutes.
5. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees C / 425 degrees F
6. Dice the feta cheese into small cubes.
7. Using a ladle, transfer the veggies to a baking tray.
8. Add the cheese, and mix it in. You’ll notice some of it will melt when it comes into contact with the hot vegetables.
9. Bake the veggies and cheese at 200 degrees C / 400 F for 35 minutes.

Thanks for this. By the way, when I said earlier that we have only two kinds of squash I was referring to summer squash. We do have butternut squash in supermarkets, too.

We also have yellow crook-necked squash, but in the winter it shifts to butternut squash which has orange interior and resembles sweet potato in taste. Then there is acorn squash and cucuzza(not certain of the spelling) which can be over two feet long. .

We have only two kinds of squash in supermarkets. One is the regular zucchini and the other is -- I just learned the name -- gray zucchini (it's actually a very pale green). I suffer that we don't have more varieties . . . . Farmer's markets here usually sell only gray zucchini from what I've seen, even though in the countryside people cultivate all sorts of squash.

Looks like an interesting dish, but I am confused if squash is generic by intention, allowing for seasonal variations to the ingredients.
As for Frank, the pumpkin pie is great, but you get so many out of one pumpkin. I would carve one for Halloween, and harvest the interior. We would then have pies for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and more to freeze. Pumpkins can be quite large.

I am not great at baking but this baked veggie inspires me to venture in baking domain. The picture is tempting and I can already feel the aromas present in this delicious recipe.

:) Incidentally, I'm not happy at all with my blue plate presentation. I now imagine a mound of salad surrounded by a circle of black olives. It's not a super great idea, but it will probably look better than it does now.

Mira, Jamie Oliver may be the source, but your description and presentation, through images and words, are compelling! I love just about anything with feta.

Thank you, Frank, for your response.

Sorry, I have forgotten the variety of pumpkin that I planted. I really must take better planting notes. I don't have a specific recipe for any soup, I just mix allotment vegetables and food scraps, and spice them well. But I use a soup making machine,which is excellent. I can choose smooth or chunky soup. I choose smooth, and the soup maker makes it perfectly. I must add that I included the pumpkin seeds, as they are very good for male prostate health. The reason for this is that they are high in zinc.
