What are the benefits of roasting vegetables?
There are excellent reasons to roast vegetables, and below are just a few of the reasons.
- Roasted veggies will maintain their fiber and vitamins and minerals for fighting disease if you cook them at 400-450 degrees.
- Vegetables that are roasted will taste more sweet. It creates a caramelized taste which is more appealing to children and picky eaters.

Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for a few hours. This helps the flavors adhere to the vegetables.
On two baking sheets, spread out the vegetable so they will crisp up. The more space around the vegetable, the more it will be likely to get roasted and brown.
Add the baking sheets to the preheated oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes and check it. Turn over the vegetables and add another 7-10 minutes until the vegetables are brown.
