“Tossing these roasted vegetables with lemon zest gives them a bright, fresh flavor. Serve them along with roasted chicken or add them to sandwiches and grain bowls for an easy, healthy dinner or lunch.”


    • 1½ cups cauliflower florets
    • 1½ cups broccoli florets
    • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • ¾ cup diced red bell pepper (1-inch)
    • ¾ cup diced zucchini (1-inch)
    • 2 teaspoons lemon zest


  • 1 Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • 2 Combine cauliflower, broccoli, and garlic in a 15-by-10-inch baking pan. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with oregano and salt; stir to coat. Roast for 10 minutes.
  • 3 Add bell pepper and zucchini to the vegetables in the pan; stir to combine. Roast until the vegetables are crisp-tender and lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes more.
  • 4 Sprinkle lemon zest over the vegetables; stir and serve.
