With the end of the summer season coming soon, I am trying to squeeze out the best of summer in these last few weeks. This is a great time to buy vegetables like zucchini and bell peppers, because there is an abundance of these in the markets right now at great prices. I would suggest making double, and then making this easy roasted vegetable soup.
So the other day I made this as a healthy dinner option. It makes a great side dish too, but I sometimes make it for dinner because it tastes great and I can feel good about it as a meatless dinner option.
I just love how good my kitchen smells when they are roasting and I can just let them cook for a while. You can change up the vegetables too.
They are so simple to make and you can prepare some of the vegetables ahead of time. I used baby potatoes, but you can use russet or red potatoes too.
They are such a colorful and savory dish with the sweetness of the bell peppers. Really good any time of year.
It's also a great way to use fresh produce from the farmers market. I like to look at what is in season, as the dish becomes more economical if you can use produce that is at the height of its season.
Don't forget to pin this recipe!

What is the last thing you made with zucchini?
I love the stacks. We have bell peppers growing in our garden right now although no zucchini this year. That makes me sad! I love it. I think we get it through our CSA, though.
How wonderful that you grow your own bell peppers Tamara! You are so lucky to have a garden!
Looks yummy! I love anything I can throw in the oven and not have to watch over 🙂
Thanks Ashely, me too! Love it when it practically cookis itself!

Love this idea! I'm a huge zucchini fan and I cook with bell peppers more than most of my family enjoys but I just don't care because I love them so much. I"ll have to try this next week when I make enchiladas. I think that last thing I made with zucchini was a taco zucchini boat recipe I adapted from Persnickity Plates on my food blog - so good too!
Yay for zucchini fans! Those zucchini boats sound really good! Will have to try them! Thanks for stopping by.

Looks delicious. I love roast vegetables. I do tend to add too much salt to my potatoes but I love it that way!
I like a bit of salt on a lot of things too Maria. Roasted vegetables make a wonderful side dish or main dish to any meal.
