Roasting Frozen Vegetables
Is it possible to successfully roast frozen vegetables..... cauliflower,green beans, asparagus, etc.?
[I was thinking that maybe it would work, if you defrosted them first, and squeezed out as much water as possible.]
If anyone has done this successfully, can you please share your method/recipe?
Thanks so much!
I do it a lot, no defrosting necessary. Directly from the freezer onto the sheet pan, toss w/ oo, s&P, whatever other seasonings, and into the oven. As long as you don't crowd the pan too much, all the liquid evaporates pretty quickly, and it browns like normal. I like mine pretty roasted, so I don't even notice much of a texture difference from fresh.
From frozen, I've done brussels, beans, cauliflower, pearl onions, even corn/red pepper mixes -- good on tacos/nachos.
I haven't tried it but thanks to the ideas here I am going to try it tomorrow night on a bag of cauliflower I have waiting in the freezer.
I do this often with cauliflower and broccoli. To me, the texture is a tiny bit different but not enough to matter.
