Roasting Vegetables


We all know we need to eat our vegetables, but do you ever want to eat your vegetables? When they’re roasted, we sure do! Believe us, roasting vegetables can take them to a whole new level where you actually crave them? Lucky for us, almost any veggie can be roasted using the same method so once you have it down, you can master any kind. Here you will learn how to roast your vegetables to perfection, like the poblano peppers we use for our Stuffed Poblano Pepper starter.

Two things to keep in mind: heat and surface area. The more surface area on the veggie and the higher the heat, the more flavorful the end result will be. So, be sure to cut up your vegetable into small, 1-1 ½ inch pieces. Then, crank the oven to at least 425° and let preheat. Then in a large bowl, toss the veggies with salt, pepper, and olive oil and spread evenly on a baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the preheated for about 10-15 minutes until you hear the veggies sizzling away. Now, just serve and enjoy! If you are roasting peppers, like our poblano, and want to remove the skin, be sure to use gloves as not to get the heat in your eyes!
