Should you not be a veggie lover,
this tempting little dish will

making you forget 
you’re eating 
vegetables!


It’s a great side dish of roasted broccoli and tomatoes tossed with Mediterranean ingredients just before serving.

Roasting brings out the vegetables rich flavors while preserving nutritional value.  






This is a simple easy side dish for any meal.  It’s filled with bite-size chunks of colorful vegetables with that good Mediterranean flavor.

  6. We love roasted veggies, all of them, but think our favourite is pumpkin roasted with a sprinkle of cumin and pimento, also parsnips are great roasted. Your mix though looks wonderful. Have a good week Diane
