Mixed Roasted Vegetables With Special Sauce Vinaigrette

It is funny how we can fill up on vegetables which contain an average of 90% water. Amazing! Therefore the more vegetables we eat the better. It is more beneficial for the body to eat them raw but for the sake of taste we roast them with some herbs and olive oil....
