I just love the sweet flavour that roasting brings out in vegetables and I love fresh herbs. Those two things together, makes this a perfect dish in my books.
Serve these vegetables warm with a side salad and/or with some meat for added protein. A grilled skinless, boneless chicken breast would be outstanding.
Leftover Roasted Vegetables are good cold. Add them to salads, or serve them as a snack, or an appetizer with some Thai Peanut Dipping Sauce.
You can roast just one kind of vegetable, or an assortment as you can see I’ve done here. Almost anything goes. Makes a great throw together dish. Use whatever vegetables you happen to have on hand in the vegetable crisper.
It’s important to use only as much oil as you need to lightly coat the vegetables. Too much oil will make the veggies taste oily and somewhat soggy.
Recipe: Roasted Vegetables With Rosemary

- Roast veggies for about 30 minutes, stirring and checking for doneness every 10 minutes.
- Add more oil, if necessary. Vegetables are cooked when slightly brown but crisp, yet tender.

- Nuts, raw or roasted, sliced, slivered or chopped. I like almonds or hazelnuts.
