Here are some Everyday Chef tips for roasting just right!

  1. Cut veggies into similarly-sized chunks.  That way the veggies will be ready at the same time.
  2. Toss veggies with olive oil in a medium or large bowl to coat evenly before spreading out on your roasting pan.
  3. Place veggies in a single layer on the roasting pan so that the heat can cook each piece evenly–go ahead and use two pans if your too crowded on one.
  4. Use a heavy-bottomed cookie sheet or a roasting pan without the rack–either will do!
  5. Stir veggies at least once, approximately half way through the cooking time.

Time-saver tip from the Domestic Diva:  Microwave your veggies, tossed in olive oil (in a glass, microwave safe bowl) for 5-8 minutes, or until half tender.  Then, spread on your pan and roast for 20 to 30 minutes.
