Vegetables Al Forno (Oven Baked Vegetables)

Prep Time:  10 mins Cook Time:  45 mins Serves: 4-6 persons

√ Mediterranean Diet √ Vegan


  • 2 potatoes
  • 2 bell peppers (orange and red)
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 large zucchini
  • 4-6 cloves of garlic
  • Papa Vince Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Papa Vince Lemon Olive Oil
  • Papa Vince Sea Salt & black pepper

How to make Vegetables al Forno

  1. Peel & slice the potatoes.
  2. Slice all the other vegetables into large chunks.  Don’t cut up the zucchini too small because it cooks quicker than the other vegetables.
  3. Make garlic into a paste using the Papa Vince peeler.
  4. Put all the vegetables in a bowl and pour in 1 tablespoon of Papa Vince EVOO & 1 tablespoon Papa Vince Lemon Oil.  Add in Papa Vince Sea Salt and black pepper and mix everything together with your hands.
  5. Pour everything into a pan and bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes at 350 degrees.
  6. You may want to check the vegetables at 35 degrees - make sure your potatoes are cooked.
  7. You have a deliciously flavorful & healthy side dish ready for Thanksgiving.


We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Italy but we love to celebrate and give thanks for all our blessings in the USA.  My mom & I came up with this healthy side dish that you can make with your favorite vegetables.  The Papa Vince Extra Virgin Olive Oil seasons the vegetables perfectly and you can add a splash of Lemon Olive Oil for a hint of citrus flavor.
