  • To grill the veggies, heat a grill pan on medium high heat. Grease the pan lightly and grill the veggies until lightly charred and fork tender. Season with dried oregano, ground cumin, salt and pepper.
  • To roast the veggies - combine the chopped veggies along with 2tbsp oil, dried oregano, ground cumin, salt and pepper - mix well and bake until the edges are lightly browned and fork tender.
