This recipe is from “Eat, Shrink and Be Merry” by Greta and Janet Podleski. Viva Las Veggies makes a great side dish to anything. I seed my tomatoes before adding to this dish. I find if you do not, it gets watery. I also scrape and discard the gills from the underside of the portobello mushrooms as well.
4 medium tomatoes, cut into chunks
2 medium zucchini, chopped
2 large portobello mushrooms, chopped
(using a small spoon, scrape the gills from the underside of the mushrooms)
1 medium red onion, coarsely chopped
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tbsp each olive oil and balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp chopped fresh herbs, such as rosemary, basil, oregano, or thyme
(I always use basil)
1/4 tsp each salt and freshly ground pepper
1 cup fresh whole wheat bread crumbs
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1. Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Add tomatoes, zucchini, mushrooms, onion, and garlic. Mix well (using your hands works best). Add olive olive, vinegar, herbs , salt and pepper. Mix again to coat vegetables with dressing.
2. Roast, uncovered, at 425F for 25 minutes. while vegetables are roasting, prepare topping. combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and thyme in a small bowl and mix well.
3. Remove vegetables from oven. Sprinkle crumb mixture evenly over vegetables. Return to oven for 5 minutes, until cheese is melted and crumbs turn a light golden brown. Serve hot.
