Passover Recipes - Roasted Vegetables with Quinoa Pilaf

The combination of vegetables and high-protein quinoa make this an elegant and tasty main dish. Quinoa is an herb - although it looks like a grain and cooks like one - and it's kosher for Passover. This recipe is courtesy of the VeggieVisitors.com site.

Roasted Vegetables with Rosemary
Ingredients:
  • 4-6 small new potatoes, sliced in half.
  • 4 carrots, sliced into 2-3 inch chunks
  • 1 whole onion, cut into 2-3 inch chunks
  • 11/2 cups red or green bell peppers, cut into 2-3 inch chunks
  • 1 yellow squash, cut into thick, ½ inch slices
  • 2-3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon dried Rosemary
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • fresh Rosemary for garnish, if desired
Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350. Toss vegetables and garlic in olive oil and herb mixture. Spray a large, shallow baking dish with non-stick coating and place vegetables in a single layer.
