Tips For Perfect Roasted Vegetables

  • Do not overcrowd the pan. Use a large sheet pan and arrange them in a single layer. Use two baking sheets if needed to make sure the vegetable roast and do not steam.
  • Make sure that you cut the vegetables into similar size pieces. This way, they will cook evenly.
  • You can roast any vegetables you want by using this simple method. 

Recipe Variations

  • Sprinkle parmesan cheese over the vegetables five minutes before they are ready.
  • Add crushed garlic cloves among the vegetables for a subtle garlic taste.
  • Add some red pepper chili flakes over the vegetables if you are a fan of spicy food.

How Long To Roast Vegetables?

Cooking time varies depending on what vegetables you’re looking for/ Make sure to cut them into 1-inch pieces. I usually roast my vegetables at 400F.

  • Root vegetables (turnips, parsnips, potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, beets, radishes, garlic): 30-45 minutes.
  • Squash (butternut squash, acorn squash): 20-30 minutes
  • Crucifers (broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, cabbage): 15-25 minutes
  • Soft vegetables (zucchini, eggplant, summer squash, bell peppers): 10 to 20 minutes
  • Other vegetables (asparagus, green beans): 10-20 minutes
  • Onions: 30-45 minutes
  • Tomatoes: 15-20 minutes

How To Serve Oven Roasted Vegetables

You can enjoy them as simple as they are or as a side dish for your favorite main meals. Here are some great ideas:

Storing Ideas 

  • Fridge – You can store the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for five days.
  • Freezer – Place the leftovers in a freezer-safe bag or container and store them for up to 2 months.

Reheating Roasted Vegetables

I love roasted vegetables served fresh straight out of the oven, but they are also delicious served cold during the week.

The best way to reheat roasted vegetables is in the oven at 375F or in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. 

I don’t recommend reheating them in the microwave as they change the texture and become soggy.

Why Do Roasted Veggies Get Soggy?

If the oven roasted vegetables are soft and soggy, your are probably overcrowding the pan or using the wrong oven temperature.

The solution? Arrange the vegetables in a single layer allowing them to breathe. Use a second sheet pan if needed.

The best temperature is 400°F to 425°F for perfectly crispy and caramelized roasted veggies.

Can I Make This Recipe Ahead Of Time?

Sure, actually, this is another thing that I love about this recipe. You can make it ahead of time by preparing and seasoning the vegetables, storing them in an airtight container, and baking them anytime.

Another good idea for when you have too many vegetables is to cut them and put them in a bag in the freezer.
