Mediterranean Roasted Vegetables

roasted peppers, onion, zucchini, mushrooms on white plate.

This vibrant vegetable dish is full of color, flavor and nutrients and is delicious served either warm or cold.

Eating a variety of vegetables in your diet is good for your health. This dish delivers on nutrition but is also packed with flavor. It is also free of the top 8 allergens and is vegan and vegetarian, serving a wide array of dietary needs.

I love to serve this with chicken as a side dish. It is fantastic served warm or chilled. The leftovers keep for days, so it is easy to make a big batch of this and enjoy it several times.

What You’ll Need:

Mediterranean Seasoning Ingredients
Roasted Vegetable Ingredients

Making the Recipe:

You’ll start by making a seasoning mix of several different herbs and seasonings. You can set the seasoning aside, while you wash and cut the vegetables.

Next, place all of the vegetables in a large mixing bowl and make the marinade for the vegetables.

olive oil, balsamic vinegar, homemade seasoning mix, salt, pepper and lemon

Finally, pour the marinade over the vegetables and mix well. Cover the bowl and place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 4 hours. I will often make the vegetables the night before and marinate them all night. Then, all I have to do when I’m ready to make them is put them in the oven and bake.

When you are ready to make the vegetables, preheat your oven. Place some parchment paper on a large rimmed baking sheet. Once the oven is ready, bake the vegetables for 30 minutes.
