Step 1

Preheat oven to 400 °F, 200 °C.

Prepare the vegetables: Begin by peeling the potatoes and cutting into wedges. Soak them in cold water until ready to use to keep them from turning brown. Slice the tops off of the tomatoes and set aside. Using a spoon, carefully remove the flesh of the tomatoes, chop it u and place it in a small bowl. Slice the tops off of the peppers and set aside. Discard the seeds.

Cook over medium-high heat or until the liquids are absorbed. About 8-10 minutes. Add the parsley, mint, and oregano along with the crumbled feta cheese. Mix until incorporated. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. Set aside.
