The Science of Baking Vegetables:
The vegetables cook quickly—many vegetables take only 20-25 minutes—but they still have a chance to brown nicely on the outside by the time they become tender inside. It’s very important that you cut the vegetables in pieces of about the same size. Unevenly sized pieces won’t roast and brown in the same amount of time, and you’ll end up with both over-roasted and under-roasted vegetables. If the vegetable pieces cover the pan sparsely, arrange them more toward the edges of the pan. Pieces near the edge brown better due to conduction.
