So how do YOU roast veggies? and do they turn out the way people say???
I have seen so many recipes that say to coat veggies in oil and then stick them in a 400 degree oven for anywhere between 30-60 min. That doesn't give me what i am looking for. Either they are very well cooked and limp or overcooked and brown/black.
So then there is the coat the pan & spray the veggies.. gee i do manage to dry out veggies and burn them. Nothing special there either.
I am just not sure what the fuss is about, how they are supposed to turn out or if i really want roasted veggies. it does SOUND good..but so far that's about it.
i like my veggies crisp tender. although for some dishes, they can't stand a lot of water.. i don't want dehydrated veggies, but getting out some water might be good when putting them on puff pastry for instance..
does anyone have a fool proof meathod and an explaination of how they REALLY turn out.. maybe what to look for to know they are done.
I guess i was looking for brown on the outside,firm on the outside, and still moist & flavor-full on the inside.
