Balsamic Roasted Vegetables

Another month has passed and it’s time for another round of The Secret Recipe Club. I’m taking a break from posting pink food for just one day to bring you this awesome fall vegetable dish. For those of you who don’t know about Secret Recipe Club, you sign up to participate, then are assigned another blog. Then, everyone posts on the same day revealing the blog they were assigned.

This month, my blog assignment was A Vegan Obsession. I have to admit that I was a bit worried that I wouldn’t be able to find anything I would want to make… But sure enough, as I started reading through the recipes, I was starring quite a few of them.

I chose this Balsamic Roasted Vegetable dish because I had quite a few veggies laying around from our last CSA box. I love how customizable this recipe could be. You can literally use almost any vegetables that you have on hand. All of the veggies that I used were from our CSA.

Hubby and I devoured these vegetables. We absolutely loved them and have made them a couple times this month already.

    There is absolutely a time and place for everything! I totally agree. This is such a classic dish, and you’ve made it beautifully. 🙂

    Such a great dish. My only complaint is when people use canned green beans. The taste and texture can be killed with canned green beans. I don’t like to hear my green beans screeching while I chew them.

    This picture looks delicious, by the way.

    I love green bean casserole. It’s one of my favorite holiday recipes. Sometimes we spice things up and add browned ground beef to the green bean mixture and top it with mashed potatoes. This makes it more like a dinner casserole and then I can justify eating plates and plates of it…hahaha.

    Ya know, this looks good, but I’ve never been anywhere this was served. Seems I might be missing out?

    I completely agree with Joe. I always use fresh or frozen green beans.

    We make this every year too at Thanksgiving and Christmas.My 4 kids hate mushrooms so we use cream of celery or cream of chicken.

    I completely agree, this recipe is perfect (and very nostalgic) just the way it is on the package. It just wouldn’t feel like a holiday meal without this dish!

    This is one of my favorite holiday side dishes! Canned green beans, soup, and all! I agree with you about having the time and place for such ingredients; it’s such a classic and familiar recipe.
