Celebrate #MedMonth with Roasted Vegetables

To start, I will answer the question that you all are thinking, Yes, I do feel fancy using a hashtag in the subject line of my blog.  🙂

In honor of May and #MedMonth, I wanted to a share a new staple in our house inspired by the Mediterranean Diet …ROASTED VEGETABLES!  They are perfect as a side dish or a snack!  I always make enough for leftovers, as they are delicious cold, reheated, or at room temperature.  Cruciferous vegetables are our favorite including, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, asparagus, repeat; however, nearly all vegetables are delicious when roasted – Recipes for oven roasted vegetables.
