The trick to perfectly roasted vegetables
Roasting your vegetables seems easy enough right? Here are a few tricks to making sure your vegetables come out perfect every time.
- Large Pan – Roasting your vegetables on a large pan is always the best option. We love using these baking sheets, giving the vegetables plenty of room to caramelize and roast.
- Oil – You can use coconut oil, vegetable oil, avocado oil, or whatever else you’d like. Make sure to oil your vegetables generously, coating each one.
- High Oven Temperature – The key to roasting is a high temperature. For some vegetables it’ll be much higher, but for this roasted broccoli and cauliflower, keeping your temperature at 425 is perfect. This will help get the moisture out fast, as opposed to steaming where moisture is trapped. Giving it those delicious crunchy edges.
Fresh Garlic to Garlic substitution Conversion
Don’t have fresh garlic on hand? Don’t fret! Here are a few conversions that can help you out in a pinch.
- 1 garlic clove = 1/2 teaspoon garlic flakes
- 1 garlic clove = 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 garlic clove = 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

Remove the stems and yellow leaves and place brussels sprouts on the pan like directions state below.
You’ll need to increase the roasting time to 25-30 minutes, or until you can easily stab through the brussels with a fork.
