Roasted Veggie Medley

The roomie bought eggplant, because we both love it…but then I had to find something to do with it. Amazingly, she got a cookbook for christmas last year that is all eggplant recipes. One of them was this roasted medley that included most ingredients I already had. Easy! But since I didn’t have them all, I improvised a bit.

Basically, what ended up going in there was cubed eggplant, chopped red potatoes, diced onions, chopped bell pepper, and chopped tomatoes. The recipe called for roasted peppers, but the fresh worked well. It also said to use a good baking potato, but I like the flavor of the red potato better. I think the baking potato would have been too bland. Over the top, it was olive oil and a whole host of spices to include oregano, rosemary, basil, thyme and sage. A little bit of lemon zest would have been really good, had I had a lemon, it would have complimented the thyme. All of this in a casserole dish got thrown in 425 degree oven for about 15 minutes or so, and it turned out to be one of those recipes that your nose will let you know when it’s ready.

Overall, these roasted veggies work really well as a side for steak, and they’re really healthy because its all fresh ingredients.

This was right after the veggies came out of the oven, they had softened up and the herbs worked their way through to infuse flavors.
