Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika or regular paprika
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano
  • 2-4 cloves garlic minced or grated, depending on your taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt + pepper
  • 2 in medium zucchini sliced 1/4 inch rounds
  • 2 cups button mushrooms halved if large
  • 4-6 pieces warm of pita or naan
  • halved cherry tomatoes sliced cucumber, kalamata olives + crumbled feta, for serving
  • 1 sliced avocado for serving

Fries

  • 1 1/2 pounds russet potatoes sliced into matchstiks
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt + pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped herbs (oregano basil, dill, parsley, etc.)

Sun-Dried Tomato Tzatziki

  • 1 cup plain full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 clove garlic minced or grated
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • juice of half a lemon
  • salt + pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup drained oil packed sun-dried tomatoes chopped
  • pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

Instructions

  • In a medium sized bowl combine the lemon juice, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, smoked paprika, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper. Add the zucchini + mushrooms and toss well, making sure the veggies are completely coated in the seasonings. Let sit for 10-15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Place the potatoes on a large baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil, salt + pepper. Gently toss with your hands or two spatulas to evenly coat. Bake for 15-20 minutes, then flip and bake for 15-20 minutes more. During the last 5 minutes of cooking, add the herbs and toss well. You want the potatoes to be tender, but crisp on the outside.
  • Heat your grill, grill pan or skillet to medium high heat.
  • Transfer the veggies, in batches if needed, to the grill and grill 3-4 minutes per side or until char marks appear. Remove everything from the grill. Alternately you can also roast the veggies at 425 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until soft.
  • To assemble, divide the grilled veggies among warm naan or pita, top with tomatoes, cucumber, olives and avocado. Add the fries and finish with a good sprinkle of feta cheese. Serve with the tzatziki (below)

Sun-Dried Tomato Tzatziki

  • Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. If not serving right away, keep covered in the fridge. The tzatziki will keep 2-3 days in the fridge. My avocado stayed pretty green due to the lemon juice.
