Tray bakes are a weekly occurrence in our house. I love the idea of being able to throw some low-carb vegetables, protein and dressing onto a tray, pop it in the oven, and have a delicious meal with minimal clean up a short half hour afterwards.

This Greek style low-carb vegetarian tray bake is our current favorite, inspired by a recipe we found in a local supermarket catalogue, and then adapted to suit our tastes.

If your tastes aren’t similar to mine, as with most tray bakes, this Mediterranean keto recipe is pretty adaptable, so feel free to switch out some of the veggies depending what’s in season or to mix up the herbs depending on what you have on hand.

I love this with thick slabs of feta, but torn chunks work just as well. You can also try salmon fillets (simply swap for feta, no adjustments to the cooking time needed), or use chicken breasts or chicken thighs that can be crisped up in a skillet for 10 to 15 minutes before baking.

This is one of my go to recipes when I want a bit of veg. Great with Salmon and keeps well in the fridge.

I agree, it's great as a side dish!
