Introduction: Mushrooms and Peppers Roasted With Herbs and Balsamic Reduction

About: Inventor and Emergency Doctor.

Roasted vegetables are a staple in our house and this is one of my favourite recipes. We had some vegetarian and vegan friends coming round for dinner and my mushrooms and peppers roasted with herbs and balsamic reduction recipe made an excellent addition to the meal. The balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, herbs and spices reduce down whilst cooking to make a delicious, rich, thick sauce.

I served mine with dolmades (stuffed vine leaves), homemade hummus, mackerel grilled with anchovies, a simple salad and baked aubergines. I have written Instructables for most of these previously, if you are interested in the recipes.
