Recipe: Roasted Vegetable and Goat Cheese Deliciousness

Roasted Vegetable and Goat Cheese Deliciousness

Are you one of those people who thinks that roasted vegetables are only good for the cooler weather months?

Yeah, me? Not so much.

Which would be how this new recipe came about.

That and I had a zucchini languishing on my counter that had to get used.

Right.Away.

So last night, when I was making dinner, I tossed the zucchini onto a baking sheet, along with a few tomatoes, some garlic, and an onion for good measure.

Once done, I added a can of chick peas.

And a few bits of crumbled goat cheese.

Because goat cheese, along with bacon and bourbon, makes everything better.

And man, deliciousness was mine.

And all mine, because this type of thing isn’t O’Malley kid-friendly.

Which is fine by me, because now I have tomorrow’s lunch all figured out.

Eat it alone.

Or stuffed into a pita pocket.

Or even smooshed on top of a sandwich as a topper of sorts.

It’s a perfect little, easy vegetarian dish that you can throw together and mix and match at will.

Mushy zucchini or not.

Wednesday? Reading and jetBlue.
Thursday? A restaurant review.
Friday? Another Summer Bucket List 2012 item off the list!

Ummm…..YUM! This looks great. I have some zucchini I need to use (got too much when I made zucchini cake) and this is a good idea.

I’m an all year round roasted veggies kind of girl also! I could eat them constantly…but my blog would get a bit boring, I fear. :P Love the sound of this veggie bowl!

I roast a lot of veggies this time of year, cause I’m getting them out of the garden.

Roast okra is now my favorite way to fix it and since i’m not suppose to have fried, it’s perfect.
