An absolutely delicious, crispy-soft mixture of veggies with traditional Greek flavours.



  • 5 potatoes, peeled and chopped into large chunks
  • 23 zucchini
  • 23 tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • 2 onions, peeled and chopped into chunks
  • 1 green capsicum, de-seeded and cut into chunks
  • 5 cloves of garlic, sliced.
  • A couple of wedges of lemon, halved.
  • Cubes of haloumi
  • 1 teaspoon of dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon of dried mint
  • Salt and pepper.
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water.


  1. In a large baking dish, add all the vegetables.
  2. Sprinkle over the oregano and mint
  3. Pour over the olive oil and water, and season with salt and pepper
  4. Bake at about 150C for three hours, stirring occasionally. As the original recipe says “NOTHING crisp-tender going on here – just meltingly, comfortingly, deliciously tender.”
  5. About 20-30 minutes before serving, add the haloumi to soften.


The longer and slower you can cook this, the better!

It’s not advised to cut down the amount of oil – it is an integral part of this dish.
