Medley of Oven Roasted Veggies With Lime Juice and Feta Cheese

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 25 mins

This recipe offers a sligthly modern (maybe even exotic) twist on your traditional oven-baked (root) veggies. Fresh lime juice paired with cinnamon sugar and feta cheese accentuate the veggie's deliciousness perfectly to make a very yummy dish! Feel free to use other vegetables if there are any you can't get or dislike.


  1. Wash, clean and cut veggies into long finger-thin pieces (like french-fries). Make sure to separate kohlrabi and carrots from the other veggies as they need to bake longer.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/400°F.
  3. Mix lime/lemon juice, oil, cinnamon,salt and sugar.
  4. Spread carrots and kohlrabi pieces on a baking sheet. Pour some of the marinade on top and make sure to coat well. Bake for 5 minutes.
  5. Add rest of the veggies and coat with remaining marinade.
  6. Bake for 10 more minutes and then crumble the feta cheese over the veggies.
  7. Return to the oven and bake for another 10 minutes.
  8. Serve with crusty bread or enjoy as is. :).

Oh yummmm! The cinnamon makes this side-dish dessert like - went great with chicken on the grill tonight. Instead of kohlrabi, I used a turnip like another reviewed suggested - which was my favorite. I nixed the feta as well. Like Andi, I put mine under the broiler to brown a bit - they weren't browning but were definitely done around 25-30 minutes. Looking forward to leftovers tomorrow!

Perfect! Loved this using up root vegetables, potato, celery, carrot, butternut squash, zucchini, and mushrooms. I was running out of time today, so I mixed up the lime juice mixture, cut the veggies, and mixed it all together. I put it in the microwave for 5 minutes, stirred, and did 5 mins more. Stirred. For the rest of the time, I added the feta, and put in the oven 15 minutes (had potatoes) turning over veggies once. Perfect! I then browned under the broiler for 2 minutes, and everything was so tasty! We loved this! Made for *Everyday is a Holiday* April 2010

My vegetables of choice were: carrots, zucchini, red/yellow/green peppers, turnip and some leftover butternut squash. We liked the hint of cinnamon on this dish. I felt it could have used a tad more salt and the baking time was a little longer then suggested. As i was dishing out the veg, I, in my horror to late realised I had forgotten to add the feta. I'm sure it would have added much more to the flavor of this dish. I certainly won't forget next time. Made for TYM tag. :)
