Balsamic Roasted Vegetables

Roasting vegetables is one of the best ways to maximize their natural flavors. It’s also my favorite way to eat them. All you need is a baking sheet, an oven, some olive oil and seasoning and you can transform your favorite veggies into a tray of warm, caramelized deliciousness. Roasting intensifies any sweetness that a vegetable naturally has, so Balsamic vinegar is a really good complement to roasted veggies. I chose the vegetables for this recipe based on personal favorites and also to have an array of colors, but you can certainly use other vegetables if you prefer. This recipe would make for a mouth-watering Thanksgiving side dish, but is really simple and delicious for any day of the year.

Ingredients:

  • 7 oz raw cauliflower florets (half of one large head)
  • 8 oz raw yellow Summer squash, chopped (about 1 small-medium squash)
  • 8 oz raw zucchini, chopped (about 1 small-medium zucchini)
  • 7 oz raw carrots, chopped (this was about 3 medium-large carrots)
  • 5.5 oz raw red onion, chopped large (about half a large red onion)

  • Salt, to taste

Directions:

    Oven roasting veggies is my favorite way to serve them. Love the addition of balsamic vinegar.

    Nice addition of the balsamic vinegar. We usually roast all of our veggies this way but I never thought to add that!

    I will definitely try this healthy recipe at home. I was advised by my doctor to increase vegetable intake for me to avoid possible health problems, this will definitely part of my healthy diet plan.
