½ tsp grated lemon zest (optional)

Lemon pepper or freshly ground black pepper to taste

1 Tbsp minced fresh oregano (reserve a few pinches)

How to Make It


1 Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

2 Starting with 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, combine all the ingredients except the reserved fresh herbs and the optional lemon zest in a baking dish, and toss to combine.
