  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 large cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp original Tabasco
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 bell pepper cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 2 yellow squash cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 eggplant cut into 1/2 inch cubes


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, thyme, parsley, Tabasco, salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Place the veggies into the marinade and mix to combine. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the vegetables are tender and then remove from the oven. Serve as a side dish or over quinoa or pasta.


While I used this marinade for vegetables, it can easily be used for chicken, fish or beef! Just marinate the protein in the marinade and then bake, sear, or grill as you would normally.
