This past weekend, I made this tasty Vegan Roasted Vegetable Tart. Some of my ingredients included zucchini, red bell pepper, grape tomatoes, red onions and vegan goat cheese. I coated them with Balsamic vinegar and avocado oil and roasted them on a light pastry sheet. The roasted vegetables made it full of flavor, with a light texture. I hope you enjoy making it.
