We try and somewhat eat “seasonally”. Why? Because the vegetables and fruits taste way better and are way cheaper! This recipe is a nice way to serve vegetables in this time of the year. A nice variety of vegetables, roasted together. We ate a big helping with a side of meat, and quite enjoyed it. 🙂

Use the veggies you have, and try it! The above mixture doesn’t have all the vegetables in the recipe below, and I added celery. It’s versatile.
