Marinated Vegetables

I try to following the rules, listen to directions, and stay within the lines when I'm coloring, but sometimes I have to stray a little!  The recipe for Marinated Vegetables described steaming the vegetables prior to seasoning them. I like some steamed vegetables, but this was a cornucopia of goodies like mushrooms and bell pepper ... and really?  Steaming those sounded too mushy to me.  So instead I roasted the veggies.  They turned out great!

I started by slicing and dicing up the required veggies: broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, mushrooms, zucchini, bell pepper, and garlic.

Then I added the seasonings: olive oil, oregano, dill, basil, and thyme.

I drizzled everything over the veggies and roasted them in the oven.

Afterwards, I stirred some balsamic and red wine vinegar into the pan right before serving.

The veggies were flavorful and tender. They were the perfect accompaniment to the pasta salad we had for dinner!
