Cooking Tips

There is more to roasting than simply placing a pan of food in the oven and waiting for it to be done.  Remember these keys for success and picture-perfect roasted vegetables every time.

Chopping

Not all veggies cook in the same amount of time so adjusting the size that you cut them can help equal the playing field.  Small dice (1/4 inch) and medium dice (1/2 inch) pieces are generally good goals based on the recipe.

Seasoning

Make sure to properly mix everything together in a bowl for even coating.  Spread the veggies out on a baking sheet that allows some space between the pieces; otherwise you’ll get more of a steaming effect.  Don’t forget to taste!

Cooking

Remember times and temperatures are guidelines, and all ovens are different.  If you don’t get the roasty exterior you are looking for, try increasing he temperature 25 degrees or moving the pan towards the top of the oven where it is hotter.  Also, if your vegetables are cooked through but need some more color; feel free to use the broiler for one last blast of heat.
