    1      tablespoon    Dried oregano

 Skin broccoli stems and quarter them lengthwise.  Cut flowerets into large
pieces.  Blanch broccoli, cauliflower, and potatoes in boiling water then drain.
 Heat the oils in a medium skillet and add one third the chopped garlic.  When
garlic begins to color, add tomatoes and simmer, covered, for 5 minutes. Place
the blanched vegetables in a large, shallow baking dish, add the rest of the
ingredients, including the remaining chopped garlic. Toss lightly, then spread
the tomatoes on the surface. Cover and bake in a preheated 500 F oven until
vegetables are cooked, about 20 minutes.  Do not overcook.
