Recipe submitted by DaVita dietitian Julie from North Carolina.

Portions: 6     Serving size: 2/3 cup


  • 2 cups red potatoes, cut
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 medium yellow bell pepper, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cup mushrooms, cleaned and halved
  • 1/2 cup zucchini, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar 


  1. Cut potatoes into 1" cubes. Place in a large bowl of water and soak for at least 4 hours. (This is called leaching and removes some potassium.)
  2. Boil the potatoes in fresh water for 5 minutes. Drain and place potatoes in a large bowl.
  3. Cut bell peppers into bite-sized pieces, cut mushrooms in half, slice zucchini and mince garlic.
  4. Add the peppers, mushrooms, zucchini, garlic, olive oil and rosemary to potatoes. Mix well.
  5. Spread vegetables on a broiler pan, sprinkle with black pepper, and broil for 12 to 15 minutes, until vegetables are slightly browned at the edges. Stir a few times during cooking.
  6. Add vegetables back to the large bowl and toss with the balsamic vinegar. Serve hot or at room temperature.
