It’s said that all Marylanders put Old Bay on pretty much anything and everything. Sprinkle a little on pasta, chips, soup, vegetables, and even beer to give a little “seafood” flavor. As a Maryland origin, I do crave crab and crab cakes here and there (yes I said it) but not for the crab flavor itself but for the seasoning it comes with so why not just sprinkle a little Old Bay on vegan dishes to give a little taste of home?
Old Bay seasoning is that is well known for being the most common seasoning for seafood. It contains 18 herbs and spices that will give any dish a little kick of zest and flavor. More information found here.
Cauliflower is a well known hearty vegetable to us vegans. I did a little different take on this veggie to use the wholeness to bring a more filling and fine dish for dinner. “Throw some Old Bay on it!”
(Makes about 3 Steaks)
1 head cauliflower
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 1/2 tbsp Old Bay seasoning
half lemon, juiced
1 1/2 tbsp parsley flakes
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Remove leaves of the cauliflower and cut the stem, making sure not to cut the core. Slice 3/4 inch thick slices. Save the remaining cauliflower florets for another dish like buffalo cauliflower bites or cauliflower rice.
In a separate bowl combine olive oil, Old Bay, lemon juice, and parsley flakes. Spoon over prepared steaks to coat on each side.
Bake for 10 minutes on each side or until tender and has browned edges.
Enjoy with prepared quinoa, corn, or as a sandwich!
