A really easy, flavorful antipasto that requires little effort or time!

Makes about 4 cups

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

4 c. red grape tomatoes, whole

1-1/3 lbs. fresh zucchini, semi-cubed 1 x 1/2 inch

6 oz. white baby eggplant semi-cubed 1 x 1/2 inch

Combine veggies in large bowl.

Drizzle with about 1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil, sea salt to taste, black pepper to taste, and about 1 t. garlic powder. Toss to evenly coat.

Transfer to baking sheet – spread out evenly.

Bake in preheated 400 degree oven on middle rack for 40 minutes. Remove from oven. Place in bowl, drizzle with additional extra virgin olive, sea salt if needed, then top with about 1/4 c. roasted garlic cloves. Toss.

Serve with French baguette or Italian bread slices or strips of flatbread or pocketless pita strips – warm, toasted or at room temperature.

Serve with additional olive oil in case guests want more to drizzle on the bread with the antipasto.

Notes: If you want to roast your own garlic, place about 1/3 cup of peeled cloves on baking sheet with the other veggies.

I like to buy mine pre-roasted now, but realize most of you won’t find them in your local grocery.

Add a little red wine vinegar and turn this roasted antipasto into a marinated salad. Or pan-fry some leftover roasted antipasto with tofu for a breakfast scramble – with or without the red wine vinegar component.

CHANGING a few words doesn’t alter the DNA of the work. LIKE a mother knows her children no matter the alterations in appearance, I know my gift when I see it on someone else, even when portions are replaced with a poacher’s words. IF you receive the goods, you are as much a poacher of talent, words and images as the poacher who stole them – no matter the purpose. I am not free and you are making me less free by stealing my intellectual material and putting other peoples names to it. CHANGING A FEW WORDS PROVES YOU KNOW YOU'RE LIABLE. STEALING another person's intellectual material isn't flattery; it's stealing. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight
