Garlic Miso Summer Roasted Vegetables

Who says roasted vegetables are only for winter? On cool summer evenings, when you’re finally in the mood to use the oven again, roasting vegetables is one of the easiest ways to add more nutrient dense produce to your lifestyle. This blend of seasonal summer produce is tossed in an immune-boosting garlic miso sauce for added nutrition and delicious flavor. When the temperature is too hot for roasting, try wrapping the mixture in foil and grilling on the barbecue instead!
