Roasted vegetables are the perfect addition to dinner, a salad, or an omelet; the possibilities are endless.  Roasting vegetables adds a wonderful crunch and sweetness to any veggie.  Below are three easy steps to roast any vegetable you would like.  I chose zucchini, eggplant and portobello mushrooms.  However, there are many choices- sweet potatoes, onions, broccoli, cauliflower, parsnips, the list goes on and on!!

STEP 1: Chop all vegetables. One inch by one inch is a good size.  Make sure the vegetables are uniform so they all cook evenly.



STEP 2: Place your vegetables on a foil lined baking sheet.  Cover with about 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, 2-3 tablespoons oil, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper.














STEP 3: Roast your vegetables in a 400 degree oven for 45 minutes to an hour.  Stir the vegetables about every 15 minutes.














ENJOY!! I put my vegetables on a bed of spinach with 2 tablespoons of feta, some greek olives, and 2 ounces of deli turkey. YUM!
