1. Combine first 5 ingredients and 1 tablespoon lime juice in a medium bowl; toss to coat. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt.

2. Preheat oven to 450°.

3. Place zucchini and poblano on a jelly-roll pan; drizzle with oil. Sprinkle with cumin and 1/4 teaspoon salt; toss to coat. Bake at 450° for 20 minutes or until tender and lightly browned.
