Mediterranean baked vegetables, “a barchetta”.

Mediterranean baked vegetables, “a barchetta”.

Mediterranean baked vegetables, “a barchetta”. My family often prepares this recipe, which is called “a barchetta” because vegetables are cut into wedges and look like small boats or canoes.
The main ingredients are fresh vegetables, aromatic herbs, and extra virgin olive oil. This is a healthy dish that is clearly Mediterranean in style and taste, but it can also be prepared in winter with other seasonal vegetables.
This recipe is #glutenfree and #vegan.

Tips.

Check the cooking after about 20-25 minutes, because some vegetables might cook more quickly than others. In this case, remove them from the oven with a fork.

You can use a variety of mixed vegetables or just one type. For example, you can use eggplants only, or other seasonal vegetables as you like.

Use fresh basil and dried oregano; in case you cannot find fresh basil, you can add two tablespoons of basil pesto after the vegetables are cooked (do not cook pesto!).
