Even if you're not a big fan of vegetables, they taste amazing when they have been roasted well. If you've never tried to do it yourself before, or if you're looking for a few pointers to up your roasting game, this video has some great tips.
In this video from the ChefSteps YouTube channel, chef Grant Lee Crilly shows you a foolproof method for roasting all kinds of vegetables in your oven. You can even roast a wide variety of vegetables all at once. Here are some of the major tips from the video:
- Sort your vegetables into groups. Mushrooms and brassicas (broccoli and cauliflower) only need about 25 minutes to roast. Roots (carrots, potatoes, etc.), onions, and squash need about 45 minutes to roast.
- Cut vegetables into pieces that are same size so everything will cook evenly.
- Use parchment paper on your baking sheet so your vegetables won't stick to it.
- Cover your vegetables with a little bit of olive oil so the heat can transfer from the bottom of the vegetables. Sprinkle them with salt for flavour.
With these tips, roasting any of your favourite vegetables should be a piece of cake. They will taste delicious and cleanup won't take long at all.
