Servings 8 servings


  • 1 head cauliflower cut into small florets
  • 2 small zucchini cut into small pieces
  • 1 heaping cup cherry tomatoes sliced
  • 1 eggplant cut into small pieces (see instructions)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp + 2 tsp za'atar
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp sweet paprika
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • A dash of lemon juice (1-2 tsp)
  • Salt to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 400º F.
  • Optional: when you cut the vegetables, cut the eggplant first and put in a large bowl along with a generous sprinkle of salt. This will help draw out liquid and make the eggplant less bitter. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  • Add the rest of the vegetables to the bowl with the eggplant. Sprinkle the spices over the vegetables.
  • Add the olive oil and toss until the vegetables are well-coated with oil and spices. Pour them evenly onto two baking trays.
  • Roast for 10 minutes, then stir with a spatula. Roast another 10 minutes.
  • Taste and add salt as necessary, as well as a dash of lemon juice. Stir well and serve hot.
