It cooled off a bit today so it's not too painful to turn on the oven. You could use just about any combination of vegetables here. I chose sweet ones - tomatoes, corn, and carrots - first roasting them, and then concentrating the liquid by cooking it down with vinegar and garlic. This is a great go-to as is or as a topping for bruschetta or pizza. You can make it vegan by using dairy-free cheese and a honey alternative like agave syrup or sugar.

Ingredients

  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 3/4 lb carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 ears of corn, kernels removed
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cups fresh herbs, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp EVOO
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 oz fresh mozzarella, cut into bite-sized pieces or use bocconcini
  • Garish, scallion tops or chives, sliced

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Meanwhile, toss vegetables with herb, EVOO, honey and SnP. Roast 25 minutes - turning about half way through.
  3. In a small pot, strain the liquid from the roasted vegetables and add vinegar, oregano and garlic. Cook over medium, boil and reduce until slightly thick - about 2-3 minutes. Let cool slightly.
  4. Toss the vegetables with the vinegar liquid and the mozzarella. Garnish with scallion. Serve warm or at room temperature.
