Honey Roasted Vegetables

Cajun French:  le jardinage (lu jar-deen-aj) – vegetables


Veg PlatedThe farmers market was teeming with young vegetables this week; eggplant, radish, squash, peppers were begging to be purchased.  We generally grill our vegetables but this week we decided to try roasting.  After slicing the vegetables we tossed them with Cajun olive oil and local honey.  The results were awesome!  The vegetables were accompanied by pan grilled salmon and salad.  This recipe is very simple to prepare yet full of flavor and aromas.  Honey is the star of this dish so make sure you use high quality local honey.
