Balsamic roasted vegetables with agave syrup

serving dumplings | Balsamic roasted vegetables with agave syrup

This is the season for roasted vegetables and I make these balsamic ones almost every week. There is nothing better than the simple taste of roasted vegetables.
They are drizzled with agave syrup, beautifully caramelized and get lots of flavor after roasting with balsamic vinegar and garlic.
Since I typically aim to fill at least half of my plate with veggies, I roast vegetables in mass quantities. If there are any leftovers, I serve them tossed in a salad the next day.
These roasted vegetables are great all on their own with bread or as a side dish with meat or fish – they will be a hit on your table.
