ROASTED VEGGIE DIP
- 1 small green or red pepper
- 1/2 eggplant, peeled, thick sliced
- 1 zucchini, thick sliced
- 1 yellow squash, thick sliced
- 1/2 red onion, thick sliced
- 4 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
- Nonstick cooking spray
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon seasoning salt

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray the eggplant, zucchini,
squash, onion, green pepper and garlic with the cooking spray, coating well.
In a small bowl, combine the cayenne pepper, seasoning salt, and
chili powder. Add one-fourth of the seasoning to the vegetables.
Toss well to combine. Add another one-fourth of the seasoning
and toss well. Repeat until the vegetables are evenly coated
and all the seasoning is added. Adding the seasonings in stages
helps combine the seasonings evenly.

in a single layer. Cook vegetables in the oven, until browned,
stirring occasionally, roughly 35 minutes.
