Eggplant, Zucchini And Tomato Dish

Eggplant, Zucchini And Tomato Dish
This vegetable-filled side dish is a flavorful mix of fresh vegetables and herbs roasted in the oven and lightly coated in olive oil. These roasted vegetables would be excellent to serve over a main protein, like fish or chicken. If you’re looking to add a bit of citrus flavor, squeeze a bit of lemon or orange to give this dish a hint of zest.

If you’re having vegetarian or vegan friends over for dinner, this would be a good side dish to prepare for both meat- and non-meat eaters.  You could also pair with a starchy vegetable like sweet potatoes or butternut squash, in lieu of serving bread or rice. If you do choose to squeeze a bit of citrus over this veggie-filled dish, you can serve with a paired citrus chicken dish.

If you don’t like eggplant, or have a difficult time finding it at your local grocery store, you can swap eggplant out for another vegetable like green beans or carrots. However, if you decide to make a swap, be sure you adjust the cooking time, especially if you are substituting a starchy vegetable.
