Instructions

For the vegetable strudel:
  1. Sauté zucchini, squash, peppers, eggplant, and red onion in olive oil over medium heat for 2-3 minutes.

  2. Once the vegetables are tender, add garlic and shallots. Cook on low for 30 seconds, then let ingredients cool on a sheet pan.

  3. Once cooled, place 1 phyllo sheet on an ungreased baking sheet, and lightly brush it with melted butter. Keep the other sheets covered with a slightly damp towel.

  4. Layer 4 more phyllo sheets on top, brushing each with melted butter. Spread vegetable mixture over finished stack of sheets within 2 inches of the edge.

  5. Place the final phyllo sheet on top. Fold the edges over twice to seal. Fold in half lengthwise. Brush with butter.

  6. Bake 30-35 minutes at 350 or until golden brown.

  7. Place baby Swiss chard, baby romaine, and baby spinach in bowls and top with 1/4 of vegetable strudel.

To prepare oven-roasted tomatoes:
  1. Toss halved tomatoes with stems removed in olive oil, garlic, thyme, rosemary, and salt and pepper. Lay them cut-side down in a shallow baking dish. Bake 2 hours at 325 or until tomatoes start to wrinkle.

  2. Top salads with oven-roasted tomatoes. Scoop goat cheese onto a plate and slightly flatten. Carefully caramelize it to brûlée consistency. Place on top of salad. Serve with your favorite vinaigrette.
