Roasted Old Bay veggies

How to re-create this recipe:


(serves 4-6)

  • 1 Head of Cauliflower
  • 1 Pound of Broccoli (about 2 heads)
  • 2 Tsp of Old Bay Seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp of Olive Oil

Putting it together:

  1.  Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line 2 long sheet trays with parchment paper.
  2. Take your broccoli and cut out small florets (leave a little stem), place them directly on the lined sheet tray. With a measuring spoon, drizzle 1 Tbsp of Olive Oil all over the florets and season them with 1 Tsp of Old Bay Seasoning. Using your hands, toss the florets together until they appear evenly coated with the Olive Oil and Old Bay. Set aside.
  3. Take your Cauliflower and cut out small florets, place them directly on the other lined sheet tray. Repeat the same procedure drizzling another 1 Tbsp of Olive Oil all over the florets as well as the other 1 Tsp of Old Bay Seasoning. Toss the florets until they too appear evenly coated.
  4. Once oven reaches desired temperature, roast the vegetables for 15-20 minutes until they appear to have a brown crust outside of them.

Nourishment for your body: Both Broccoli and Cauliflower belong to the Cruciferous vegetable family. These particular vegetables are known to decrease the risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Broccoli is high in folate which has been known to decrease the risk of developing breast cancer as well as colon, stomach, pancreatic and cervical cancer. Just one cup of broccoli can provide just the right amount of Vitamin K your body needs in a day! This improves bone health.

Cauliflower, like Broccoli helps reduce risk of Cancer. Cauliflower fights inflammation, improves digestion and detoxifies, helps balance hormones, aids in weight loss and preserves eye health.

Tips when cooking: I have only tried roasting these two veggies with Old Bay seasoning. But go ahead and get creative!!! Try roasting other veggies with Old Bay seasoning. Kids also tend to gravitate towards foods with a crust so you may find your children suddenly eating their vegetables without being talked into it!
