At my house, and probably yours too, roasted vegetables are a much-loved dinnertime addition any day of the week. They don't quite require a recipe, they're versatile, and most importantly, they're delicious. Let's make sure we're always getting the best results possible — and to do that, you've got to crank up the heat. This is the temperature we (almost) always go with and why.

Always Use High Heat for Roasting

The best temperature for roasting vegetables is between 400°F and 450°F, with 425ºF being the temperature we call for most often.

From sweet potatoes to carrots to butternut squash, this temperature along with a few other key techniques produce the best roasted vegetables. And by that we mean vegetables with crisp and caramelized outsides and tender, just-cooked-through centers. Not mushy veggies here!
