This week in my C.S.A. box I received so many delicious vegetables, it made me think back to my mother’s roasted vegetables dish so I thought I would try my hand at re-creating her dish in my kitchen. Basically, it’s whatever you have on hand, and what your garden is producing. The list of vegetables can vary so select your favorite vegetables, and try this easy and quick dish for dinner tonight. This makes a great side for your main dish. Serve with rustic bread, and a glass of wine.

Mary, I made a version of this last night, using the sesame-herb salt from Arianna Trading Company. So good! Thanks!

Thank you Stephanie! I’ll have to try the salt with it, I bet it gave the vegetables a boost!
