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.
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.
