This Roasted Vegetable Recipe is Simple and Delicious!
Today I am sharing another yummy recipe from my pal, Laura Hamby. In case you missed the last one, head on over and check out her Kale Salad Recipe.
The great thing about Laura's recipes are that they are super easy to make, plus they're healthy! I love that you can add some quinoa to this roasted vegetable recipe and dinner is served.
Versatile Herb Roasted Vegetable Recipe
- 1 eggplant
- 1 red pepper
- 1 yellow pepper
- 1 onion
- 1 package of mushrooms or whole 3 tomatoes
- 3 carrots
Cut all veggies in chunks, you can leave the mushrooms whole or sliced, place cut vegetables on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Toss with two tablespoons of coconut oil and sprinkle generously with salt, pepper, garlic powder and dried Italian herbs. Mix it well then bake at 375 for 40-45 minutes or until tender.
Eat alone as a side drizzled with balsamic vinegar, top your green salad with the veggies or mix it in with rice or quinoa for a meal.
Note: You can make this recipe with your favorite veggies too: broccoli, cauliflower, etc. This time of year squash is plentiful and tastes really good in this mixture. Also, consider using as much organic produce as possible.
For a guide to what produce to buy organic check out the Dirty Dozen list on the Environmental Working Group website. It's eye opening!
