Oven Roasted Vegetables

Mmmm,  roasted vegetables. They are such a great compliment to any meal and they are pretty darn good for you too. One of my favorite things about roasted veggies is that you can pick and choose what kinds of vegetables you like, apply the same technique and you will get  very yummy results. For this recipe I roasted crimini mushrooms, zucchini, tomatoes, onions and a little garlic.

Ryan and I devoured these and didn’t feel the slightest bit guilty! As I mentioned before you can add just about any of your favorite vegetables to these, if you decide to add potatoes, you will probably need to up the temperature to about 400 and increase the cooking time slightly.  These are great served with Roasted Pork Tenderloin or Broiled Cajun Prawns. Enjoy!

    Hi Deseree,

    I’ve been reading your blog for about a year or so and have been drooling over everything that you make. I finally made something- the oven roasted vegetables and they were DELICIOUS. So simple and so good. My boyfriend and I devoured them. I made this w/ the lemon pepper chicken from your site and it was a great meal. I hope you have a great New Years and thank you for your blog!

      Hi Carolyn,
      Thank you for following the blog for so long! I am happy to hear that the vegetables and chicken that you made were a great meal. I’ve never made the two together but it seems like it would be a winning combination. I hope you have a great New Year’s too! :)
