What You Need

1/2 c olive oil (approx)

2 large onions

4 zucchini - sliced about 1/2 inch thick circles

4 peppers (any pepper you like); stemmed, seeded and quartered

1 eggplant - sliced about 1/4 inch thick circles

3 or 4 carrots, sliced

1/2 c balsamic vinegar

8 oz goat cheese (or soft cheese of your choice)

Kosher salt and pepper, to taste

Handful of pine nuts (opt)

 

Directions

• Wash and cut all vegetables. Place in a large bowl or plastic bag.

• Add 1/2 the olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix well. Place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

• If grilling outside, preheat your grill to medium-low and brush grate with olive oil. Place vegetables on grill for 2-4 minutes each side.

• If roasting in the oven, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat pan with olive oil and cook until each side has a nice golden brown color.

• While veggies are grilling/roasting, heat balsamic vinegar in saucepan and reduce by at least half.

• Arrange cooked veggies on platter, top with goat cheese and drizzle balsamic vinegar over the top. Add nuts (optional).

• Serve with crunchy bread, soft pita or flat bread.
