Roasted Asparagus, Broccoli and Summer Squash

Roasted Asparagus, Broccoli and Summer Squash recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Roasting is one of my favorite ways to prepare vegetables. It is so simple and the vegetables always turn out well with very little effort on my part. Tonight's dinner was especially fun, because the squash was from our very own garden! This is the first year we have had a garden and has been exciting to watch our plants grow each day. The squash was our first harvest and it was delicious. I am looking forward to an awesome summer of fresh home grown organic vegetables.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut the vegetables into bite size pieces. Cover a large baking pan with foil and spread the vegetables out in a single layer. Drizzle generously with olive oil and sprinkle sea salt and freshly ground pepper over the top. Toss gently with your hands to coat. Spread across the pan and place in the oven. Bake for 35-45 minutes. Toss gently with tongs and serve warm. Enjoy!
