You can eat these to your heart’s content with no worries. Takes 10 minutes to prep and about 30 minutes to roast. Makes four heaping servings!

1 red onion, sliced
1 white or yellow onion slived
4 zucchini thickly sliced
1 eggplant, cut into chunks
8 oz baby corn (I skipped this, totally your call)
1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into large dice
1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and cut into large dice
2 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
4 tsp olive oil (or for variation use a flavored oil like chili or herb oil)
salt and freshly ground pepper
2-3 tbsp chopped mixed herbs

Place all the vegetables and garlic in a nonstick roasting pan. Add the oil and seasoning and toss until the vegetables are lightly coated with oil. Bake in a preheated oven at 425 degrees for 20-30 minutes, until just tender and tinged brown at the edges, stirring once or twice. [I forgot to do the stirring, but it was okay.]. Sprinkle with the herbs and toss to mix. I used rosemary and chives in place of the mixed herbs. Delicious hot or cold with broiled lean meat or fish and baked potatoes.
