Here’s a great way to use up any leftover vegetables sitting in your refrigerator. If you don’t have the vegetables used here, feel free to substitute any sturdy veggie you have on hand, such as carrots, fennel, parsnips, eggplant, and cauliflower.  

Roasting deepens and intensifies the inherent sweetness of vegetables; so don’t be surprised if this becomes a new family favorite!

Mediterranean Roasted Vegetables

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 40-45 minutes


  • 1 lb. bag mini sweet peppers, seeded and cut in half 

  •  1 lb. Portobello mushroom caps, sliced

  • 1 large red onion, sliced

  • 1 lb. Brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half

  • 2 t. garlic powder

  • 2 t. Herbs de Provence (or Italian seasoning)

  • 2 T. extra virgin olive oil

  • 2 T. balsamic vinegar

  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste 


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Add peppers, Portobello mushrooms, onion, and Brussels sprouts to a large mixing bowl. Add garlic powder, Herbs de Provence, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar and gently toss to combine. Season generously with salt and black pepper, to taste. 
  3. Arrange seasoned vegetables on prepared baking sheet in a single layer, being careful not to overcrowd. Use two large baking sheets, if necessary.
  4. Place sheet pan in preheated oven and roast for 40-45 minutes, stirring halfway through, or until the vegetables are tender and develop a nice caramelized color. Remove from oven and serve immediately. Enjoy!

You will love what the olive oil and balsamic vinegar does to these vegetables.  This recipe may have the most anti-veggie person thinking twice.
