Customize this recipe with your favourite herb-and-spice combination! Salt and pepper if you like things simple; chili powder, cumin and cayenne for some Tex-Mex flare, or cinnamon, nutmeg and a touch of sugar for something sweet!

  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
  • Dried herbs, spices, salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F.
