Roasted Veggies Delicious as a side dish or as an addition to a green or grain salad.

Ingredients:
• ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
• 4 large garlic cloves – crushed and minced

• 3 medium eggplants – sliced lengthwise into 8 wedges, each wedge cut into 3 pieces

• 3 large red bell peppers – cut into bite size pieces

• 2 medium red onions – cut into 8 wedges, layers separated


• 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves (1/2 teaspoon dried)

• Sea salt & freshly ground pepper to taste

To Prepare:
1. Preheat oven to 400F.

2. Put all the vegetables in a large mixing bowl, sprinkle the thyme leaves in, and drizzle the olive oil over the mixture.

3. Use your clean hands to mix the vegetables with the oil and herbs.

4. Arrange the mixture on a large baking sheet, spreading them in an even layer. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the vegetables and place in the oven.

5. Roast vegetables for 15 – 20 minutes, turning over once during this time, until the eggplant is tender when pricked with a knife. Remove from the oven and either serve immediately, or let them cool for later use in a green or grain salad.

"After thirty years of eating healthy foods and participating in regular, vigorous exercise, I was astounded to discover I have Coronary Artery Disease. In March of 2010, I had two stents placed in my Left Anterior Descending Artery- this was big. I consulted Robin Mallery, RN, knowing she is a local expert on Cardiac Rehabilitation. I especially respected her lifestyle of nutrition and physical fitness. Robin’s reassurance that I was doing many things correctly, and her instructions on how to fine-tune my program to deal with this life-threatening disease, was invaluable. Robin’s exquisite grasp of balancing traditional medicine with diet, exercise, relaxation and fun has helped me through this medical crisis". --Maiya Gralia, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and cross-country ski instructor and coach
