The mix you see here has carrots and sweet potato in it. I've been known to dice up a tomato (getting close to ratatouille there) as well. This amount shown here is enough for a side dish for three people at two meals, and it's incredibly cheap and easy. I will sometimes make this in small dice instead of slices, refrigerate, and use as a relish on burgers or chicken. It's incredibly tasty on a burger, so much so that you don't even need ketchup!

Oven Roasted Vegetables
1 whole zucchini
1 whole yellow crookneck squash
1 whole onion
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
salt to taste
pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350°F. Chop all vegetables into quarter-inch dice, or slices half an inch thick, depending on your preference. In a 3 quart casserole or 10-inch oven-safe pan, toss all vegetables with the garlic, oil, salt and pepper. Roast for one hour, stirring about halfway through to re-coat all the veggies in their juices. Serve hot as a side dish, main dish, or use as a spread in sandwiches.
Besides adding orange veggies like carrots or sweet potatoes, I have considered stirring in cooked legumes (beans or lentils) during the last half hour to make a complete vegetarian meal, but I have not tried it yet. If you do, drop me a comment and let me know!
