Leftover roasted vegetables

I have a big bag of grilled vegetables (yellow squash, zucchini,red, yellow, and orange peppers, mushrooms, and red onion marinated in olive oil and balsamic). Does anyone have any suggestions on how to re-purpose them into something delicious? Maybe some kind of salad, or wrap?

    1. I love having leftover roasted veggies! Some things I do with them:

      - make a wrap with hummous, sriracha and the veggies
      - make a simple garlic and olive oil pasta and toss with the veggies, topped with lots of freshly grated parm
      - eat straight out of the fridge :)

        A roasted veggie pie would be amazing, too. Your favorite pastry in a straight-sided deep dish, filled with the veggies and feta cheese, top with crust. Bake.

      2. I like to toss them with pasta and sprinkle parmesan on top.

        Or make a panini with grilled vegetables and cheese.

        1. Ina Garten's roasted veg orzo is great and these would work well.

          1. Have you considered making them into soup?
            Add your preferred stock and puree....finish with cream.

              I've done the same thing - pureed them and then used them in various soups/sauces/etc.

                Yes to pureed roasted vegetables frozen in ice cube trays, then into a freezer bag. When you have meat, poultry, or seafood drippings, add a cube or two and some dairy and/or wine to make a yummy pan sauce.
