Caper basil vinaigrette:

  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoon freshly chopped basil
  • 1 tablespoon capers with their juice
  • 1 clove garlic minced


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Transfer the prepared veggies and chickpeas to the baking sheet. Toss with olive oil, oregano, red pepper flakes (optional), salt, and pepper. Spread the veggies and chickpeas out in a single layer, then make room for the planks of feta cheese to be nestled between the other ingredients.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until the veggies are tender, the feta is soft, and everything is lightly browned. In the meantime, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, basil, capers, and garlic in small bowl.
  • Transfer to serving plates, and drizzle with the dressing.

  • This recipe serves about 2 to 3 as a main dish but can be doubled to serve more people. Just be sure to use two baking sheets so that the ingredients don't overlap. You can also bulk up the recipe by serving it over pasta, brown rice, orzo, or farro.
  • You can use different vegetables, but avoid veggies that take long to cook (i.e. root veggies). Zucchini, cauliflower, or green beans would be good substitutions.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
