  • 1 zucchini, sliced

  • 1 summer squash, sliced

  • 1 red onion, cut into chunks

  • 1 pound asparagus, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 1 pound portobello mushrooms, thickly sliced

  • 1 pinch white sugar

  • salt and black pepper to taste

  • 4 cubes chicken bouillon

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

  2. Place the zucchini, squash, onion, asparagus, and mushrooms in a large bowl; add in garlic, olive oil and sugar, and stir gently to coat vegetables. Spread vegetables in a single layer on a baking sheet, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  3. Roast vegetables until tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
