Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Spread 1 teaspoon coconut oil into the bottom of a cast iron skillet or baking dish. Add eggplant, zucchini, garbanzo beans, yellow squash, onion, kalamata olives, and garlic to cast iron skillet. Sprinkle 2 teaspoons rosemary over vegetable mixture and toss to coat vegetables in oil.

  • Bake vegetables in the preheated oven on the bottom rack until slightly tender, about 20 minutes.

  • Heat the remaining coconut oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat; place sardines in the hot oil and sprinkle with garlic powder and the remaining rosemary. Fry sardines until heated through, about 5 minutes. Top roasted vegetables with sardines and feta cheese.

Cook's Note:

You can use smoked or fresh sardines. If you are cooking fresh sardines, cook for a few minutes, flip, and cook until fish flakes.

I was looking for something to spice up the tins of sardines we had in the cupboard and this worked very well (good flavor). I did accidentally leave out the garbanzos (and I used the whole eggplant because I had a small one and didn't want to leave the rest in the fridge). The coconut oil I had was in solid form so I had to heat it to coat the veggies and I think it took more than 1 tbsp. to do it. Read More
