Roasted Vegetables, Mediterranean Style!

So, my husband has been out of town on business and I making dinner for one. Since I like leftovers (because they are great to bring for lunch the next day) I made a massive amount of roasted vegetables and couscous. It was so good I have to share it. This is one of my favorites, you can add any sort of veggies you fancy. This last time I used eggplant, zucchini, garlic cloves, carrots, a parsnip, cherry tomatoes, red and green bell peppers.

See how pretty? So many colors, ready to get mixed up and roasted.

Put a few good dollops of olive oil, sea salt and ground pepper in the mix and you’re in business. Rosemary would be a nice addition too….pity I didn’t think of that before.

Spread the chopped veggies on a baking sheet and roast for 45 minutes at 375 F.

Here it is out of the oven.


My son came by for dinner so we shared this with couscous, leftover chicken and watermelon. Oh, toss some feta cheese on the veggies and it melts enough to make it all creamy. Not a sauce, not that thick. So. Good. My granddaughter ate some too, she has an adventurous palate for one so young and I am happy about that.

Next I will have to regale you with a story about an immersion blender and why it’s a great idea to keep a stocked first aid kit at home 🙂 That’s a post for Saturday.

  1. I adore roasted veggies — what a great idea to make a batch for the next several days. And immersion blender injury? That sounds scary.


  2. Add me to the roasted veggie lover group. My husband hasn’t been out of town, but he did have 2 late meetings this week and wasn’t home for dinner. I roasted fresh green beans, red bell peppers and mushrooms. It made a lot and I ate on them for 2-1/2 days. I’m going to be doing this more often. Immersion blender? Injury? So sorry about that!


  3. This summer I want to try using the gas grill to roast veggies more. It’s still chilly here (spring) so I could still get away with roasting veggies in the oven, too. I have a roasted veggie salad recipe somewhere that calls for feta and black olives, and I love it!
