Roasted Summer Vegetables

One of my favorite ways to cook any kind of vegetable is to roast it.  A lot of people roast winter vegetables, but summer vegetables are just as delicious roasted, it intensifies their flavors and makes them even more delicious!  It is a simple say to make vegetables that everyone will enjoy.  The recipe I am sharing with you today for roasted Summer vegetables is versatile.  It can be served as a side dish alongside a protein for a healthy option, or you may toss it with cooked pasta and a little olive oil, lemon juice and sea salt for a quick dinner.  Or, you can save the leftovers and include them on a sandwich or wrap.  If you have bought a bunch of veggies and don’t know what to do with them, give this method of preparation a try.  And, of course you can add in your favorites as well, if they are not listed.

Place in the oven and roast for about 30-40 minutes until the veggies are tender and starting to brown at the edges. Let cool slightly, and serve!
