Mediterranean Roasted Veggie Salad
I like vegetables, what can I say? I might even go so far as to get kicked out of Argentina for saying that I'm nearly a vegetarian by choice because I think that veggies taste better than meat. Please don't stop reading my blog for that statement! I just find that veggies and grains absorb flavor so much better than meat (especially beef - now I'm really going to get kicked out). Here's a easy dish that can be a quick lunch, dinner, or side. I had it as a salad with grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch. Check it out!
1 Package Squash/Calabaza
1 Red Pepper
Large handful of golden raisins
Basil - chopped
Spices - cumin, curry, cinnamon, salt, pepper
Directions: Chopped all veggies and lay onto a roasting pan. Sprinkle with spices, drizzle with oil and honey. Mix around so each pieces has flavor on it. Place in oven on high and roast until cooked through (20-30 min). Remove from oven and let cool. Add chopped basil and raisins. I sometimes add cheese and almonds for a more hearty meal. Mix salad and add extra salt if needed.
