Balsamic Roasted Zucchini & Mushrooms

Two of my favorite vegetables combined together with garlic and balsamic vinegar make this a must try side dish the next time you're looking to try something new and easy! You know how much I love roasting things and this was no exception. Just look at the beautiful color and the taste was incredible! 



Balsamic Roasted Zucchini & Mushrooms
2 Zucchini, washed and sliced into 1/4" thick slices
8-10 Large Mushrooms, rinsed and quartered
2 Cloves Garlic, chopped
2 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar
Kosher Salt, to taste
Fresh Ground Black Pepper, to taste

Add the zucchini, mushrooms and garlic to a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, salt and pepper and pour over the vegetables. Mix well then place on a baking sheet. Bake at 425 for 15-20 minutes, turning halfway. Serves 4.

  3. Wow, three things my GF loves and I've never put them together for her. Seems like a good summer dish that is light, yet has enough substance.

    1. Thank you Amee, it was! Even the kids ate it and my little one doesn't really like zucchini at all. :)

  5. This is also my two favorite vegetables. I have found in the past that Zucchini and yellow squash also pair quite well. One squash most people forget about is "Patty-Pan". These little squash have a marvelous flavor and quite enjoyable.
