How to roast vegetables in the oven
- Make a good choice of the vegetables that you want to roast. Go with the season for fresh and budget-friendly veggies.
- Clean the veggies, avoid peeling them as you'll lose a lot of vitamins by doing so.
- Cut the vegetables. I cut huge zucchini while my potatoes are thinner. This is because the potatoes will take longer to cook than the rest of the veggies.
- If you're roasting tomatoes, leave them whole even if they are big. This will prevent them from giving too much of their juice away.
- Make sure your oven is well hot before you put the vegetables to roast.
- Oil the baking sheet and splash some spices on top.
- Place the prepared vegetables in one single layer (do not overlap otherwise you'll steam the veggies instead of roasting them).
- Sprinkle with some more spices and salt.
- Add fresh herbs like rosemary, thyme, or oregano. Avoid fresh herbs like basil or cilantro as they'll be burned and not give you their flavors. However, you can add them at the end when the veggies are roasted.
- Roast your vegetables at 180°C that's about 392°F... Don't roast your food at very high degrees as some unhealthy chemical reactions can occur.
- Once the roasted vegetables are cooked, remove from the oven and let them cool a bit, but appreciate them when they're still hot.
These juicy oven-roasted vegetables with rosemary are enough for our meal. We don't add anything as potatoes are high in carbs and there's enough dietary fiber to leave us satiated.
That's pretty much of it, my friend, you don't have a lot of work to do, but, you'll enjoy one of the most delicious roasted vegetables out there.
What to do with leftovers
- If you have leftovers, and if the temperatures of your kitchen aren't high (hot) you can leave the roasted veggies in the cooled oven to be eaten the following day. Just reheat them.
- If not, then store in the fridge for a day or two, just note that leftover potatoes do change their flavor and texture.
Hopefully, you'll be roasting veggies soon now that you have this recipe. Please note it as you comment, and share it out.
Blowing you kisses, Githu.
