    FloridaNative's Note:

    My modified version of a recipe from Whole Living magazine, July/Aug 2011. This is a delicious vegetable dish, and can be made with or without the olive oil. I have replaced the oil with fresh lemon juice and it has a very light and lovely flavor. My 12 year old loves it! NOTE: Serving size is estimated. Prep time includes marinade time.
