Roasted Fall Veggies with Orange Thyme Vinaigrette

Roasted veggies make for such a perfect fall/winter dinner.  They can be eaten alone as a meal over rice, salad or pasta (says me!) or make the perfect side dish!

Fall Roasted Veggies

After roasting several cups of fall veggies I tossed them in a refreshing vinaigrette with a hint of orange and thyme.  This combo made me swoon!  I could not get enough.  What I  I love most about this is dish, aside from being so healthy, is that you can literally serve it any way you want.  I used the leftovers to top my salad the next day for lunch and it was beyond delish.

Speaking of healthy delicious meals have you all heard Oprah has a new line of Microwavable foods?  As much as I love Oprah I’m not sure about this – frozen cauliflower mash or butternut mac n cheese?  I think homemade would be just as easy affordable and a lot more flavorful.  This is one of my favorite butternut squash mac n cheese recipes.

You can serve this straight out of the oven warm or at room temperature.  You could also use whatever fall veggies you love.  I think beets and/or Brussels sprouts would be so good.  Anyway will be quite amazing!
