Spring Roasted Veggie Casserole

Back to Veggies again…hoorayyyy, so happy when my recipes have veggies as the main ingredients.  I actually took a picture of my mini little garden so that you can see how it’s coming along.  (I am sure Luda from Plants and Beyond will love this 🙂 I did take Luda’s advice and added a bit of coffee grinds into my soil.  It seems that my veggies are loving it).

Growing up our home was always filled with all sorts of delicious smells when my mom was cooking, but this specific dish was truly one of my top favorites. Such a delicious combination of veggies that I am sure everyone will enjoy eating.  I was tempted to add Spinach and Mushrooms, but I thought I would save it for a  delicious recipe that I have in mind for later on. 🙂   When I first started blogging this was one of the first recipes I posted with far less ingredients, because I wasn’t actually sure what to do and how to do it back then, but now I feel a bit more at ease and so I tried it out again. 🙂  (working on taking photos helped me but I do still have a long way to go)   

So, I do love to add peppers into most of the veggies recipes that I make…I like how colorful the dish looks and the taste is sometimes just a bit sweeter depending of course on which peppers you will be using. 🙂  In this recipe most add garlic, and since I am the only one who does not eat garlic, I make two batches so that all can be satisfied. 🙂  

A Spring and Summer delight for anyone who loves veggies and just wants to eat something healthier and lighter. 🙂


4 large Aubergines  (cubed)

4 large Zucchini (sliced)

2 medium onions (chopped)

2 Red Bell Peppers (sliced)

6 fresh Tomatoes (grated)

2 teaspoons Tomato Paste (optional)

2 Garlic Cloves (optional)

1 cup Olive Oil



1 tablespoon Oregano (optional)



Wash and drain all vegetables and then pat down dry.


Cube and slice the Aubergine and Zucchini.


Slice Peppers.


Add all the ingredients into a large pan and add fresh tomatoes.


Add in olive oil, salt, pepper, tomato paste and top with peppers and oregano.

  8. Such a sweet little garden! I habe a similar one 🙂 And the veggie casserole looks awesome – my stomach grumbles when I look at the picture 🙂

    1. foodzesty says:

      Thank you Karin..Please take a photo so that I can see you herb garden. 🙂

      1. Not much too see right now – only a bit of mint, some very small radish plants, tomatoes and peppers. I disseminated basil seeds and oregano is growing in every crack of my balcony 🙂

      2. foodzesty says:

        they will grow soon. 🙂 I planted broccoli hahahah and it has worked out so far…its growing like crazy 🙂 dill, basil, parsley, carrots, have been planted so far. I need a bigger one to plants tomatoes and all the rest of the seeds that I have. I still would love to see your mini garden. 🙂 Huge hugssssss and Kisses Karin

      3. Today I planted thymine and some more flowers. But the seeds we planted last week didn’t do anything until now. I hope it was not too dry for them… But I’ll post a picture as soon as I see something green.
        A few years ago I also tried broccoli and carrots, but it didn’t work so well – I had problems with pests… Huge hugs back :))

      4. foodzesty says:

        Ohhh niceeee!!! I asked Luda from Plants and Beyond about adding coffee grinds into my soil and you can see from the photo how the veggies loved it….try and add some into yours, but ask or tell luda how big your garden is so that she can tell how much to add it.

      5. It’s already a bit late for that – everything is planted now. But I’ll ask her for next year.
        Today I had to remove all plants from my balcony, because I get a new floor there. Unfortunately I broke the top of my apple tree when I carried it into the hall. Although it only had one apple in 5 years, I’m very sad about this accident…

      6. foodzesty says:

        i had already planted mine and added some more soil with cooffe grinds its not too late but thats up to you

      7. foodzesty says:

        ohhhh nooo Karin so sorryyyy about the appke tree 😯
