Roasting some vegetables is perhaps the simplest and healthiest way to create a side for dinner. The right vegetable can go along with anything from lobster to scrambled eggs! Cauliflower is one of our favorites to roast because, flavor-wise, it is very much a blank canvas. You can keep it simple with just salt and pepper or go nuts with a custom spice blend.

Our recipe adds just a touch of color and zesty flavor with Old Bay seasoning. It's kinda like putting Old Bay on popcorn—only healthier and way more delicious. A 425ºF oven is the ideal roasting temperature for most veg (see our Brussels sprouts and green beans recipes) to give them that high-heat caramelization (aka flavor).
