Equipment

1 baking sheet, baking paper, 1 knife, 1 cutting board, 1 large bowl.

Preparation

Wash the vegetables, clean, and cut them into cubes, except for the onions, which should be cut into thin strips.

Line a baking pan with parchment paper, and preheat oven to 200 degrees.

Put all the vegetables — except the tomatoes – in a large bowl; season with 3 tablespoons of olive oil but do not add salt yet. Carefully mix.

Pour into the baking pan so that the vegetables form a single layer. Add 2 tablespoons of water and bake for about 20/25 minutes, turning them once only halfway through cooking.

After 25 minutes add the tomatoes, salt, pepper, and mix carefully. Spread the grated bread and herb mix over the vegetables.

Place again in the oven for another 10-15 minutes, until all the vegetables are tender and the bread has formed the crust.
