I went to the Farmer's Market in Union Sqaure today. As I approached the market from Broadway I could smell the refreshing aromas of fresh herbs and veggies. I bought a whole lot of vegetables like eggplant, peppers, zucchini etc and greens like arugula and spinach. And then I found the tastiest goat cheese I've ever had so I decided to browse through all my cookbooks and find a recipe to use these ingredients.
I found a very easy recipe for roasted vegeatbles with goat cheese from Food Everday from the kitchens of Martha Stewart.

In a bowl, whisk together 1 tablesppon olive oil and 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice; season with salt and pepper. Add roasted vegetables and 1 to 2 bunches arugula, stems trimmed; toss well. Serve sprinkled with 1 cup crumbled goat cheese.
