How to Roast Any Vegetable

Here's our cheat sheet to roasting any veg in under an hour (some are ready in just 25 minutes!). These caramelized beauties are the perfect building blocks for all kinds of fall meals, especially when paired with our bright condiments.

For every 2 pounds of vegetables, mix with 2 to 3 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil, then season with salt and pepper. Spread in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast at 425 to 450 degrees, flipping once, until tender and golden brown. (Since all ovens and vegetables are different, begin checking for doneness at the early end of the suggested cooking time.)
