Lemon Rosemary Roasted Vegetables

Big batch cook lemon, fresh rosemary roasted vegetables for quick meals

Roasted veg taste great warm, out of the oven, room temperature, even cold. Serve with rotisserie chicken, or in a lettuce wrap, with a couple of eggs cooked your favorite way, or go simple: over greens with a whole grain of your choice (big batch cook that too).

For an easy quick week-night dinner or lunch-on-the-go, make a big batch of lemon, fresh rosemary roasted vegetables on Sunday, and then store in an air-tight container.
