Notes

How can you make roasted vegetables tasty?
 
To make roasted vegetables tasty, you may add extra flavor before or after roasting. Add some flavored oil, cheese, spices, or citrus, depending on your preference. 
 
Can you roast vegetables ahead of time and just reheat them?
 
Yes, you can. Some people prefer roasting vegetables ahead of time then reheat them when needed. We suggest roasting the vegetables one day before, but never more than that.
