The Simple Way To Totally Revive Soggy Canned Vegetables

While canned vegetables might seem less appetizing, actor and social media star Tabitha Brown roasts them to upgrade the flavor.
In a 2020 Instagram video, Brown laid canned garbanzo beans, hearts of palm, and mushrooms on a tray, sprinkling them with garlic powder, curry, nori furikake, and coconut soy sauce.
She placed the uncovered tray in the oven at 475 degrees Fahrenheit, roasting them for about 20 minutes.
Brown then combines rice, mixed greens, lettuce, avocado, tomatoes, and the roasted canned vegetables in a bowl, finishing it with dressing, salt, and pepper.
Brown's followers commented that the canned vegetables had seemingly transformed, looking much more appetizing after being roasted in the oven.
When you're prepping the veggies for roasting, drain the liquid and pat them dry before placing them on the pan, as veggies roast better when dry.
You can also chop vegetables into smaller pieces for a quicker roasting time. Certain veggies may take longer to roast than others, so you may need to work in batches.
