“Roasted vegetables are an easy side dish as they give you time to prepare the rest of your meal while they roast in the oven. This recipe is tossed with a citrusy dressing and then sprinkled with a fragrant gremolata of parsley, scallions, sun-dried tomatoes, and toasted almonds. There's so much flavor in this dish that it works best with something simple like grilled fish or chicken.”


    • Roasted Vegetables
    • 1 medium butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into ½-inch pieces
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
    • ½ teaspoon salt, divided
    • ½ medium head cauliflower, trimmed and cut into ½-inch slices (1¾ cups)
    • ½ medium bunch broccoli, trimmed and cut into ½-inch slices (1½ cups)
    • 1 cup red bell pepper, seeded and cut into bite-size strips (1 large)
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
    • 1 large clove garlic, minced
    • ½ teaspoon ground pepper
    • ½ teaspoon finely shredded orange peel
    • Gremolata
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
    • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced scallions
    • 2 tablespoons chopped sun-dried tomatoes (not oil-packed)
    • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds, toasted


  • 1 Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • 2 To prepare vegetables, place squash in a large shallow baking pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon salt. Bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes.

  • 3 Meanwhile, whisk together the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, the lemon juice, orange juice concentrate, garlic, ground pepper, orange peel, and the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt in a small bowl; set aside.
  • 4 For gremolata, stir together parsley, scallions, sun-dried tomatoes, and almonds in another bowl.
  • 5 Add the lemon juice mixture to the roasted vegetables; toss to coat. Transfer to a serving dish; sprinkle with the gremolata.
