How do you store roasted vegetables:
Typically, when I make roasted vegetables, I try to make enough just for that one meal. Reheating vegetables later takes a lot of the nutrients and flavor out of the vegetables.
If you do have leftovers make sure they are fully cooled.
Cooled vegetables will not create as much moisture in the refrigerator making them less soggy.
Store in an airtight container. Reheat in the microwave for about 2 minutes at max.
