  • 1 oz capers

Lemon Sauce 
Yield: ½ cup

  • 4 cloves roasted garlic, smashed
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon oregano
  • salt and pepper

The How-To


  • Coat zucchini and halved lemons in oil, salt, and pepper in a roasting pan. Roast at 375 degrees F for 30 to 40 minutes or until beginning to darken. Be sure to flip once midway through.
  • Coat Comrade Cluck, whole cherry tomatoes, and capers in oil, salt, and pepper.
  • Remove lemons from roasting pan and add additional veggies and Comrade Cluck. Return pan to oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender and roasted.
