All the seasoning listed in the recipe...well, pop them all into the ovenproof flan dish, just like in the photo. See here the red wine vinegar, olive oil, generous amounts of herbs, pepper,salt, garlic and paprika.
Give it a good stir around.
Place all the sliced onions and tomatoes into the tray and toss them around so that every piece is well coated with seasoning. Be sure there's enough oil to prevent the vegetables dehydrating and add more if required.
Bake for 30 minutes then remove and add feta cheese, frozen peas and top with shredded tasty cheese.
Bake for 15 minutes till the cheese is a lovely golden brown and allow to stand for 10 minutes before serving.

The key to roasting is to make sure that the ingredients do not dry out. In this instance, be sure to coat the tomatoes and onions thoroughly with the oiled seasoning and be sure to add more good quality olive or rice bran oil, if so required - just another half or one tablespoon - not too much.
Be generous when seasoning with herbs. It is the garlic and herbs that adds depth to vegetarian recipes.
