How to make frozen vegetables crispy
In order to ensure your veggies get crispy, be sure not to let them thaw before roasting. Also, cooking them on a high heat helps to get them nice and crispy. I cook mine at 425 but if you prefer super crispy you might try bumping up the heat to 450 degrees F.
One thing to keep in mind is that since frozen vegetables contain more moisture than fresh, they will get crisp but still be softer in texture than fresh roasted. vegetables.
- Be sure to spread out the vegetables in a single layer on the baking pan so that they roast well.
- Roasting times may vary depending on what vegetables you are cooking and how large the pieces have been cut.
How to store
Store: Keep any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2 days.
Reheat: I like to reheat in the oven or air fryer. In the oven cook at 400 degrees F for about 5 minutes, and 360 degrees for 2 minutes in the air fryer.
