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.
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.
Place ingredients on sheet pan and roast in the oven.
To buy: two tomatoes, 1/2 pound red or yellow potatoes, one red onion, one bottle balsamic vinegar, one bottle dried oregano, one container minced garlic, one bunch broccoli florets, one block feta cheese (3 ounces needed) and one bunch cilantro.
Staples: olive oil
