Oven Roasted Vegetables with a Hummus Dressing

With any menu, you need to have a variety. Salads, appetizers, mains, starches, sides…I am always challenged when it comes to my veggie sides as I am not the biggest vegetable eater. But this recipe for oven roasted vegetables plates beautifully and artistically and has the option to include any vegetable, which makes it perfect for personal predilections. Really, feel free to experiment with whatever you have in your fridge. Arrange the veggies in a rainbow pattern or toss them together, either way this dish will look impressive.

The humus dressing and cilantro are not a must, however I highly recommend both as that’s what gives the vegetables their irresistible, flavorful zest. Also, the humus sort of camouflages the veggie taste for picky eaters like myself, who are not big on the whole healthy foods idea.
Timeless and not seasonal, oven roasted vegetables are affordable and really great for any occasion.

Oven Roasted Vegetables with Hummus Dressing

– ¼ lb. mushrooms, cubed
– ¼ lb. yellow zucchini, cubed
– ¼ lb. green zucchini, cubed
– ¼ lb. eggplant, cubed
– arugula (to taste)
– fresh cilantro (to taste)
– Olive oil
– Salt and pepper (to taste)
– 1 tsp. garlic powder
– 1/2 cup hummus
– 1/2 cup Filippo Berio extra-virgin olive oil
– Juice of 1 lemon
– 1 tsp. kosher salt
– 1 tsp. garlic powder
–  tsp. cumin
– ¼ tsp. black pepper

Place vegetables on baking sheet lined with baking paper. Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder, drizzle with olive oil and roast in oven on 425 °F until soft but not soggy.
Serve cold oven roasted vegetables over arugula with a lot of semi chopped cilantro sprinkled across top and dressing drizzled over.

Tip: I like to keep the leftover dressing in the fridge to use on various salads or as a dip for raw veggies. The dressing is even better the next day!
