Old Bay Roasted Cauliflower is one of my absolute favorite things to eat! It’s my go to side dish whenever we have seafood, and it also makes the perfect snack for watching the game. But let me back up a minute. This Kentucky girl used to have no idea what I was missing. When I first met my husband, who is a good old Maryland boy I might add, I can remember one of the first things he asked me was if I liked seafood. At that time, popcorn shrimp and fish frys were the extent of my seafood history and knowledge. He quickly introduced me to “real” seafood when he took me back to the Chesapeake Bay and let me try all kinds of fresh new things. I swear you haven’t had a crab cake unless you’ve had one from Maryland. Okay, back to the Old Bay Roasted Cauliflower….
So my husband puts Old Bay on everything, and I mean everything. This recipe was actually his idea and typically I’m not as much of an Old Bay freak as he is, but this recipe is a keeper! Cauliflower is a great source of Vitamin K and Vitamin C and is packed with antioxidants and has some amazing anti-inflammatory benefits too. The added benefit of Old Bay, is that is makes my hubby happy! 🙂
Chop a small head of cauliflower and put into a bowl.
Drizzle about 2 Tbsp of olive oil over the cauliflower and mix until well coated.

There’s not much more I love more than garlic. Well besides wine, wine truly does make everything better. And bacon, boy do I love bacon. But cooking with garlic does make this world a better place, and I love cooking with garlic. I put it in just about everything.
So when I received a bundle of these awesome purple beans in my Week Ten CSA Share I knew I wanted to roast these bad boys with a little garlic. You know magic is pretty cool too. And when you cook these pretty little purple beans, they magically turn green! How fun is that? If you want to impress your children with some “magic” buy some delicious purple beans, cook them and amaze your kids as they come out of the oven green. I promise you will be the coolest.
This recipe is super easy and oh so tasty. Even if you don’t have purple beans, green beans will still be equally delicious. In addition to being an excellent source of Vitamin K, green beans also contain many other valuable vitamins and minerals, making these a great option to add to your diet.
