Spicy Roast Cauliflower and Sesame Green Beans

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

Last night we celebrated Nick's Birthday, and I treated him to Lemon Oregano Roast Chicken with two super healthy vegetable side dishes.  Both came from one of my favorite cookbooks, The South Beach Cookbook.  They are also extremely easy with minimal ingredients and tons of flavor.

Spicy Roast Cauliflower

1 head cauliflower, cut into florettes
1 tsp red pepper flake
2-3 tbsp olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir to evenly coat cauliflower.  Then add to a foil-lined cookie sheet (for easy cleanup), and cook for 30 minutes.  Voila.

Sesame Green Beans

1 lb greenbeans, trimmed
10 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp sesame oil
2 tbsp soy sauce

Bring saucepan with about 2" of water to a boil and then cook green beans for 2 minutes, drain and set aside.  In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, garlic, oil and soy sauce, and then add green beans.  Stir to incorporate.  Serve warm or cold.
