Lemon Roasted Vegetables over Rice is a vegetable packed dish that will be a lot of flavor to your table. Fresh vegetables, roasted with lemon are the perfect pairing.
Sometimes I just feel the need for a hearty vegetable dish. I love to roast vegetables any time of the year, but especially in the cooler months. There is just something about these warm vegetables that hit the spot.
I am always looking for new ways to season the vegetables that I roast. I’ve heard about people roasting lemons along with their vegetables and thought it was worth a try. Let me tell you, I haven’t looked back. Hop aboard the lemon train, this stuff is good. If you love lemon, you will love how it flavors all the vegetables in this dish. The lemon and vegetable flavors, marry perfectly.
I love using a variety of colors in the vegetables that I roast. They say, you should be eating all the colors in the rainbow! Well I tried with this dish 🙂 I came close!
