Roasted Veggies

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.

"With you guiding me through the HeartMatters program, I was able to achieve a level of physical fitness that made regular and focused exercise feel more like a natural part of my day. I had slipped into a malaise that meant exercise could be ‘put aside’ for work or other important activities. Getting past this is a subtle but powerful accomplishment.

I really enjoyed playing and exercising with you outdoors (my preferred MO for our time together). The joy you bring to your work is wonderful. This flexibility put a kind of structure into my day that helped me ‘choose’ again – showed me how to take back some control of my schedule for important things like meditation and exercise.  It was also part of my journey of re-learning how to say NO to things. This represents additional forward movement for me.

Thanks Robin – I have really benefited from your work in more ways than just the obvious fitter, leaner, stronger me."
