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!!
