    Hi there
    Do you need to add any liquid to the dish before it goes into the oven?

      Hi Ruth,

      The olive oil is just fine. 🙂

    This is OUTSTANDING! my husband and teenage sons wolfed it down and couldn’t believe it was dairy / meat free. Thank you for sharing…

      I’m so glad your family liked it! Thanks for the feedback!

    I followed the directions exactly and ended up with my dish totally burnt on top and the potatoes uncooked at the bottom. What could have happened there?

      Hi Stephanie,

      I’m sorry it didn’t turn out well for you. Do you have an oven temperature gauge? Sometimes that can be the problem.

    I just put this in the oven for the direst time. The recipe does not state covering the dish in foil but I did it anyway. Crossing fingers!

      Let us know how it turns out. I usually don’t put foil because I like it to be a little crispy on the top.

      Also, it seems as though someone else had a problem with the burning. Please feel free to stir about half way through. I made it again for friends last night and it was yummy!

    I made this a couple nights ago. My kiddos aren’t big zucchini-fans but the fella and I loved it. Thanks for the recipe, Toni!

      Yay! I’m glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for the feedback.

    If anyone else has a picky husband (or child) like I do, I put all the ingredients in my food processor except the potatoes so there were no large vegetable chunks for him to object to. He really liked it and still got all the benefits of the zucchini and bell pepper 🙂
    Thanks for the recipe!

      Wow, I would have never thought to do that. I’ll try it! Thanks, Stacey!

    Toni…OMG, this was absolutely delicious. I made it last night and I told my husband I want it again today and he totally agreed and wants it again also. My 3 year old at his serving as well. We put smoked & Sweet Paparika in it and it tasted like it had a nice nice flavor. OMG and it was super easy to make. We Love this dish and it’s one of the favorite meals in my household.

    Anything I could sub the oil with? I try to avoid added oil as much as possible. thanks!

    I tried this tonight, subbing onion for the pepper because that’s what I had. I added some liquid smoke and thought it was delicious. Thanks for the inspiration. You give me needed confidence to experiment.

    I just tried this tonight and it was delicious, thank you! I forgot to buy shallots and went ahead and made it anyway and we all loved it. For some reason your photo looks “creamier” than mine, but it doesn’t really matter because it tasted GREAT 🙂

    Looks amazing – do you think the oil could be substituted with veggie broth?

  15. posted by dottie84 on July 30, 2015

    This was so delicious!! My kids liked it and so did I. It was so fast and easy but it was full of flavor. I left out the nutritional yeast as I’m not a fan of the taste, but otherwise, loved it! It’s a keeper!

    Fantastic! I’m sending it On to my vegetarian daughter and the omnivore as well

    Is there a way I can cook this if I don’t have an oven?
