Savory Balsamic Oven Roasted Vegetables

Have you ever tasted a piece of heaven in your mouth?

Yes. These will definitely be a frequent visitor at our house. And they are especially good as a side to this. And as my great Dad who more often than not makes up his own words would say…”YUMMONA!” (definition: really yummy. Pronounced like the word “Yum” in front of the word “Mona” like in “The Mona Lisa”):) .

I feel like its impossible to add too many delicious vegetable dishes into my rotation. And these Savory Balsamic Oven Roasted Vegetables have now made it to the top of the list! So colorful. So beautiful. So delicious.

And especially now that summer is here! Can it get any better than fresh vegetables roasted with thyme, rosemary, and a hint of Balsamic vinegar?

One of the best parts about these savory roasted vegetables is that you can add which ever ones you like to the mix and it still tastes fantastic! I have exchanged carrots for the sweet potatoes, and added summer squash in exchange for winter squash.

Its a beautiful side to any meal if it can make it to the table before eating it all gone! Trust me…its that kind of good. 🙂

    Have you ever done these vegetables with the pork loin? Because they sound like they would be delicious together.
