Mediterranean Roasted Vegetables

It’s Fridayyyyy! And a long weekend! Can’t ask for much more! I’m excited to sleep in, having a big glass of wine, and do some serious cooking!

My friends over at STAR Fine Foods recently sent me bottles of their newest cooking oils and I was so excited to dig in! I got bottles of the Grilling Cuisine Oil, Asian Cuisine Oil, Italian Cuisine Oil, and then Mediterranean Cuisine Oil. I wanted to cook with all of them, but then I realized it might be weird to use all four in one recipe, so I ended up opening the Mediterranean oil first. I was really intrigued by the chili pepper in it. I made the right choice. It’s bold and peppery, but not overpowering!

This oil would pair perfectly with chicken or beef, but it also works really with roasted veggies! I chopped up some of my faves and tossed them with some of this delicious oil, some salt and pepper and just shoved them in the oven and that was it! The great thing about these veggies is you can eat them plain as a side dish, over rice or couscous, in a hoagie roll with some melted cheese on top, or you can even use it as a pizza topping! Lots of great possibilities here!

  1. I just love Star Fine Food products, they are simply wonderful and full of flavor. I love your vegetables, they look so light, refreshing and flavorful! Have a wonderful weekend!!

  2. I could eat like 2 big plates of these roasted veggies.

  3. Those cooking oils look fabulous. I love roasted vegetables… looks delicious. Enjoy your long weekend!! :)

  4. I can’t decide between the zucchini or peppers as my favorite roasted vegetable in this dish so I’ll just say its both.

    I’m partial to Star’s red vinegar. It’s usually the cheapest one and its actually quite good.
