How to Roast Vegetables

Roasting vegetables is an easy way to bring out the flavor of the vegetables and is a healthy way to eat them. You can roast vegetables either alone or in combination with others. You won't need much (or any) seasoning because the flavors are concentrated.

1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

2

Prepare your vegetables.

Depending on the vegetables you use, you may need to peel and chop them.

3

Place the prepared vegetables in a large mixing bowl, pour some olive oil over them, and toss well to blend.

You can also season them generously with salt and pepper.

4

Transfer the vegetables to a roasting pan.

You want the vegetables to be in one layer (not tightly packed), so make sure your pan is big enough. Cook in multiple batches if necessary.

5

Place the pan in the oven and roast for 25 to 30 minutes.

Turn the vegetables several times.

6

If after 25 minutes the vegetables are tender but not browned, place them under the broiler for a minute or two.

Don’t let them burn!
