Is there anything more dazzling than a bright array of vegetables in the summer? Often times root vegetables perform a solo act, but blended together, these grown-underground gems can create new depths of flavor. Red and orange vegetables are high in Vitamin A so not only will your eyes be dazzled by this dish, but so will your body. In this recipe, you will roast, saute and puree your way into an exciting new take on a veggie side dishes.  Purees are decadent, simple and versatile and can be eaten as a side, as a soup or as a colorful bed to your favorite entree.

Pompeian Olive Oil We made this recipe with Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Pompeian was started in Tuscany and has been importing olive oil for over 100 years. They blend and bottle their olive oil daily to maintain the highest level of freshness. The thing that makes Pompeian Olive Oil difference from the others is that they import their olive oils from multiple regions depending on season so you know you are always getting the best.
