Mediterranean-Roasted Vegetables

Roasted Veggies

Here’s a great way to use up any leftover vegetables sitting in your refrigerator. If you don’t have the vegetables used here, feel free to substitute any sturdy veggie you have on hand, such as carrots, fennel, parsnips, and eggplant. 


Roasting deepens and intensifies the inherent sweetness of vegetables; so don’t be surprised if this becomes a new family favorite!


Tip: This recipe calls for Herbs de Provence, but Italian seasoning can be used instead. This will alter the flavor profile a bit, but the result will still be delicious. 


Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 40-45 minutes
Serves: 4-6


Ingredients:

1 lb. bag mini sweet peppers, cut in half and seeded

1 lb. Portobello mushroom caps, sliced

1 large red onion, sliced

1 lb. Brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half

2 t. garlic powder

2 t. Herbs de Provence (or Italian seasoning)

2 T. extra virgin olive oil
2 T. balsamic vinegar

Sea salt and black pepper, to taste


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat® baking mat. Set aside. 
  2. Add peppers, Portobello mushrooms, onion, and Brussels sprouts to a large mixing bowl. Add garlic powder, Herbs de Provence, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar and gently toss to combine. Season generously with salt and black pepper, to taste.

  3. Arrange seasoned vegetables on prepared baking sheet in a single layer, being careful not to overcrowd. Use two large baking sheets, if necessary.
