Mediterranean Roasted Vegetables

March 17, 2010

This is an easy and delicious vegetable side dish. You could add zucchini; a yellow pepper would add even more color. If your eggplant is small and really fresh, you might opt to leave the skin on. Mine was a little “tired” and the skin seemed a bit tough, so I peeled it.

Don’t worry about the amount of garlic; it becomes sweet when it’s roasted.

The vegetables cook down quite a bit, so this recipe serves 2 – 3.

Put the vegetables and herbs in a large bowl. Give a generous sprinkle of salt and pepper. Toss all ingredients with the olive oil and spread them out in the pan.
