Expert Tips

  • There are two keys to perfectly roasted veggies: First up, keep your oven temperature high to really caramelize the sugars in your veggies. Between 400°F and 450°F is a good range for roasting.
  • Secondly, don’t crowd your veggies in the oven by packing them too tightly onto your pan. Give them space to breathe on the baking sheet. If you don’t, you’ll steam your veggies instead of roasting them.
