The Best Technique for Roasting Broccoli & Cauliflower
The best technique for roasting vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower is to roast them at higher temperatures. When you roast vegetables at higher temperatures, the natural sugars caramelize until they're browned and crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Plus, roasting is an easy process that requires minimal effort. If you want to take an additional step for extra-crispy roasted vegetables, add some cornstarch.
