Whether you enjoy spending hours in the kitchen or prefer cooking once every few days, it's always helpful to know how to save time when preparing a particular dish. This allows you to be more efficient and stay on schedule.

"In this case," writes SSPDaily, "we will tell you how to bake vegetables faster without compromising their quality. Here are some simple and practical tips in this regard."

What takes the most time when cooking vegetables?

First, cutting vegetables takes a lot of time. So why not buy them already cut? You can do this at any supermarket that sells pre-cut raw vegetables.

Secondly, peeling vegetables, even for an expert, is a long and tedious task. On the other hand, the peel contains a lot of vitamins and nutrients. So isn't it better to leave the vegetables as they are? Just rinse them well to remove any residual chemicals and dirt, and proceed.

Third, to make the vegetables bake faster, you need to put them in a preheated pan. If the pan is already hot, they will start cooking as soon as they hit the hot metal. Just put the pan in the oven when you start preparing and it will be hot when you need it.

Different vegetables require different roasting times

One time does not work for all types of vegetables. With this in mind, you may want to roast them in stages if you are combining different types that require different cooking times.

Place the ones that require more time in the oven first and then add more ingredients to the pan to account for the varying cooking times.

Although the baking time for vegetables depends on the temperature of your oven and their size, here are some rough guidelines:

Sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts bake for 35 minutes.

Regular potatoes and tomatoes bake for 30 minutes.

Winter squash, parsnips, eggplant, and cabbage require about 25 minutes.

Carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and green beans need about 20 minutes.

Bell peppers and onions take 15 minutes.

Okra takes 12 minutes.

Peas, zucchini, and summer squash are the fastest, requiring only 10 minutes to bake.
