Grilled or Roasted Parmesan Balsamic Veggies

Here's the Dish

One of the best ways to get the most flavor out of your fresh summer vegetables is to roast or grill them! This balsamic marinade brings out the natural sweetness, and when topped with salty parmesan, the taste is unbelievable! Forget candy or french fries…This recipe will have everyone demanding, {Yes… even your kids}, “More Veggies Please!!!”


The estimated total time to make this recipe is 10-30 minutes.


Oven Roasting: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a large baking pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.  Wash, dry, and cut vegetables and place in a bowl. In a small bowl, mix ingredients for dressing, and drizzle over vegetables, tossing to ensure vegetables are evenly coated. Place vegetables on pan and roast in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Remove pan from oven, sprinkle parmesan evenly over vegetables, and place pan back in the oven. Turn oven to high broil for the last few minutes to slightly crisp the parmesan if desired. Enjoy!


Grilling: Preheat grill over high heat. Spray a vegetable roasting basket with cooking spray.  Wash, dry, and cut vegetables and place in a bowl. In a small bowl, mix ingredients for dressing, and drizzle over vegetables, tossing to ensure vegetables are evenly coated. Place vegetables in a grill basket (or you could skewer the veggies). Grill veggies for 3-10 minutes, tossing with tongs every few minutes. When veggies reach desired tenderness, sprinkle parmesan evenly over vegetables, and cook an additional 1-2 minutes. Enjoy!


For best results, marinate the vegetables in the dressing for at least 30 minutes before cooking!
