Smoky Roast Mushroom Bowls recipe here.
Lately I’ve been really getting into roasting at high temperatures.
I love ‘cranking up’ my oven to the highest setting because it feels a little bit ‘bad-ass’.
And because it cooks things so much quicker.
Which is awesome if you want dinner in a hurry.
So when I got this question from one of my done-for-you Meal Planning customers, I thought it was a great one to answer.
Is High Temperature Roasting Safe?
The short answer is YES.
However it’s only a yes if you remove the food from the oven before it’s burnt.
The thing is, air is a poor conductor of heat. So even when your oven is super hot it takes time for the food to heat up and cook.
I tested this the other day with some cauliflower. It was only 100C (200F) when I removed it from the oven.
No hotter than if I’d roasted it for a longer time in a cooler oven.
So yes it’s safe.
Just remember roasting at higher temperatures means everything happens much quicker. So check and stir more frequently.
And get the food out before there’s any charring. Easy.
