Roasted Veg Salad

What you need: 

4 carrots (or two really big ones)
1 large eggplant
2 large zucchini
a lot of mushrooms as many as you want
1 packet sun dried tomatoes
1 large ripe avocado
1 packet mixed lettuce leaves (the larger sized ones)
Dressing:
2 heaping Tablespoons vegan Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic minced
just under a quarter of a cup of balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil + more to drizzle on veggies
salt and pepper

What you do: 

Preheat oven to 380 F With your handy vegetable peeler peel zucchini’s and carrots into nice long ribbons. Slice eggplant into thin round slicing in half again if its a very large one. Slice butternut into thin pieces. Chunk up the mushrooms (quarters if they are portobello 1/2's if they are buttons) Put all veggies on a large baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. toss to coat and stick it in your oven. Cooking times vary but I suggest waiting until the veggies caramelize a bit. After you have taken out the veggies pour a little bit of hot water on sun dried tomatoes and let soak for a couple of minutes (don't let them get too soggy) Once slightly cooled through the salad leave and roasted Veg together in a large bowl, toss in sun dried tomatoes, Halve the avocado, remove pit and scoop out onto salad. Mix Dijon, garlic and salt and pepper than add vinegar stir was throw in the olive oil and pour dressing on salad. Yummy!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I didn't follow this recipe exactly but I stole your idea. I used eggplant, portobellos, green onions, and red bell pepper. I coated them lightly in olive oil and grilled them. I added carrot and avocado at the end. My boyfriend loved this too!

The directions say, "Slice butternut into thin pieces," but I don't see it listed in the ingredients. Do you mean butternut squash? I'm assuming so, but just wanted to check. ;-)

yepp sorry I didn't list butternut squash as an ingredient but its my favorite. Maybe I didn't list it because I can't imagine life without butternut(squash)

I agree - butternut squash is delish!! Do you use a whole one for this recipe?
