Over the last few years I have learned to LOVE veggies.  I love them raw, grilled & steamed but my favorite is roasted.  And these roasted veggies are my ALL TIME FAVORITE!!

Good for you…

Now we all know that veggies are a good choice but when you make them extra yummy they become a GREAT choice.  The key to make them even better than normal is all in the seasoning.  Just a little goes a long way.  So with a little extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder and chili powder you can take ordinary and make it extra-ordinary.

Since the veggies are loaded with goodness for you splurge a little with a balsamic drizzle giving the veggies just a little extra something that will leave everyone wanting more.

Make it everything you want

The beauty of this recipe is that you can pretty much choose any veggie you love.  I went with broccoli, onions, peppers and brussels sprouts.   Yep, those brussels sprouts make another appearance.  I tell you you need to give them a shot, they really are so, so good.  The Hubby even asks for them now, especially after this recipe.

Green beans would be great, asparagus, cauliflower, eggplant, squash…I’m telling you the possibilities are endless.

Get to roasting…

Veggies everywhere

The Hubby and I love these veggies so much that we make them almost every week.  Yep, every week.  So we will eat them as is the first night but then I transform them.  The next day I may add them to come couscous for a veggie couscous salad (like this one) or use them in a soup (like this enchilada soup).  You could also throw them on some greens for a delicious salad.

Now this is all dependent upon that you have veggies left over…good luck with that.

Get to the farmers market or your favorite grocery store and get your veggie on.
