momma said, "eat your vegetables..."

Little Man isn't quite on board with this yet (we still catch him feeding the hounds under the table), but this versatile side dish selection has become a favorite of the other three, & D. & i too!
this is an easy, quick& ultimately tasty way to prep veggies...& it is what's cooking wednesday!

Roasted Vegetables

*pour a small amount of olive oil into a roasting pan/dish, covering the bottom
*clean, trim & cut a selection of various vegetables to fill a roasting pan/dish with a single layer (today i am using yellow & green zucchini, julienned carrots & red peppers, white onion)
*finely dice several bulbs of fresh garlic & add to veggies
*sprinkle with sea salt & fresh ground pepper
*drizzle with olive oil & balsamic vinegar...toss well
*bake uncovered 25-30 minutes...until veggies are tender & slightly browned...be sure to turn & baste them at the half-way mark!
*i will add other seasonings on occasion, based on the main dish (rosemary, sage, basil, oregano...)

buon appetito a tutti!

That sounds VERY Mediterranean! :) I'm making this dish quite often lately but I stir-fry the veggies in a pan. The weather is still way too hot to use the oven!! But the result is quite similar as long as you're careful not to overcook. I use zucchini, 2 or 3 bell peppers of different colour, onion, but I also throw in a couple of tomatoes. And fresh basil. Mmmmh! :)
