Italian Vegetable Bake

Don’t take the ingredients here as a directive, but as inspiration. If you’ve got an odd concoction of veggies waiting to be saved from the compost bin, bake them up together with canned tomatoes and garnish with a sprinkle of cheese to make sure they get enjoyed instead of tossed.

Ingredients

  • 1 (28 oz.) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • ½ lb. green beans, sliced
  • ½ lb. okra, halved crosswise
  • ¾ cup bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. sliced fresh basil
  • 1½ tsp. chopped fresh oregano
  • 3 medium zucchini, cubed
  • 1 medium eggplant, cubed
  • 2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325ºF. Mix together all ingredients in a large baking dish, including juices from tomatoes, and bake, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender (1 hour).
  2. Garnish with Parmesan to serve.
