Rosemary and Lemon Roasted Vegetables

Did you get snow where you live? Here in Chicago we actually got a lot of snow! I was hibernating with a warm fire, a cup of hot chocolate and Homeland.  Do you watch Homeland? We recently starting watching it on Netflix and are pretty much addicted.  Every time a new DVD shows up we watch the whole thing in one night! It is nice to have something to do when it is 10 degrees outside and your almost eight months pregnant!

I also did a little bit of cooking to keep myself busy.  These Rosemary and Lemon Roasted Vegetables were on the list and they turned out great. I mixed my favorite vegetables with rosemary, chunks of lemon, garlic and herbs.  Instead of using olive oil, which I normally do, I got the opportunity to try Pompeian Grape Seed Oil when making this recipe.

Using grape seed oil worked great and had a light flavor that was not overpowering.  Not only is this Rosemary and Lemon Roasted Vegetables recipe easy to make, it is a side dish that your whole family, including the kiddos, will love!

Who doesn't love roasted veggies! The addition of lemon juice sounds like a tasty way to add a burst of fresh flavor.

I agree! I love adding lemon to all foods--it adds such a fresh, citrus flavor!
