Broiled veggies (BSI entry)

I was so happy when Biz @ Biggest Diabetic Loser decided to bring back the Blogger Secret Ingredient (BSI)!  She chose zucchini, a very versatile and tasty veggie.  I was going to make grilled skewers, but had no skewers!  So I just broiled up a bunch of veggies.  It was quite delicious, and very healthy.  This is another Rice Diet Cookbook inspiration.

Broiled Veggies (BSI = Zucchini)


  • 1 cup brown mushrooms, chopped in half
  • 1 large red pepper, chopped in 1 inch squares (approximately)
  • 1 red onion, chopped roughly
  • 3 small zucchinis, halved and then chopped in 1 inch pieces (approximately)
  • 1/2 pint grape tomatoes
  • <1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1.5 tablespoons lemon juice (about 3/4 of a whole lemon)
  • freshly ground pepper


  1. Mix the vinegar, lemon juice, and pepper.  Pour over the veggies in a large bowl and mix well.  Let them sit for 20 minutes, mixing again halfway through.
  2. Preheat your broiler.
  3. Put all the veggies in a large dish.  Broil for 10 minutes about 6-7 inches away from the broiler.  Mix them around halfway through.
  4. Move the veggies up as close to the broiler as possible, and broil for 4-5 more minutes.  Mix them around and broil for another 4-5 minutes.  They should be slightly browned in some areas.

Enjoy!  I had mine with a great whole wheat pasta salad that I will post sometime this week.

    roasted veggies, in general, are like a sample of eden’s garden, if it were food.

    i love roasted veggies too. Sometimes the simplest ingredients, like you have here, are best.
