Yummy Roasted Vegetables


We have been getting quite a few beets and heirloom zucchini in our CSA (Community Shared Agriculture) box. My family loves roasted beets so I decided to try a dressing to coat the vegetables as they roasted.

Verdict:

My family gobbled this up. They love their veggies and this sauce gave it just a bit of a different flavor to change things up. We will be making these again soon!

We served these with chicken and a green salad.

    This is something that I like to cook when I have something else in the oven. It is one of those dishes that has endless possibilities with spices, and vegetables. Yours looks good. .

    This looks so good, but alas I have 1 kid deathly allergic to beets and 1 kid mildly allergic to onions, and they all hate Brussel sprouts (I, however, love them!). I think I will make this with the zucchini and Brussel sprouts (and they can just pick them out!).
    Thanks for all the delicious recipes!!

      Thank you! Yes, used whatever vegetables you like or have on hand. Green beans, carrots, etc… will also work.
