Roasted Cauliflower & Edamame

My family enjoys roasted cauliflower but I wanted to add some more color and variety so I scoured the freezer. Score! I found some frozen edamame (soybeans) and thought I would give it another try (first attempt did not go over well with everyone). Did you know that edamame is packed with fiber and protein? Well, it is, so find ways to incorporate it into your repertoire of foods.
Another question: Have you also been discouraged after trying something new? Well, try again. Maybe try it sauteed instead of steamed or grilled instead of baked. Come on, I did with the edamame and I am sharing the winner below. By the way, I told my kids it is a big pea so they approached it with less reservation. Then, only after, they tried it, I told them that they are called edamame.

1/2 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
1 cup edamame (thawed from frozen)
1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 red sea salt (grinded a bit with a mortar/pestle)

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees . Whisk together the oil, paprika, chili, pepper and salt in a bowl.
2. Pour half of the oil mixture over the cauliflower, toss well and place into the oven for 25 minutes.
3. Mix edamame with remaining oil mixture and then place into oven, with the cauliflower for 12 minutes. Serve.

Great idea to add edamame to roasted cauliflower - sound delicious!

p.s. I'll be back from picking my daughter just a little bit before 2pm so I'll give you a call then.

Love that sneaky little pea/edamame trick! This is a good one for kids and us grown folks too. :)

I have added them to curries, and my husband said I was brilliant, and this looks so good.

yum, this looks great! I'm a big edamame fan (and strangely enough, so are the kids). I want to give this one a try!

I love roasted cauliflower too, never thought to combine in with edamame. What a great idea!

This is a super cool recipe. I have never roasted a cauliflower & adding edamame is a great idea. ..adds all those proteins to it. I add peas to my cauliflowers, but my kids love picking on edamames too.

Oooh, that cauliflower looks scrumptious! I just bought a head for .50 so I must try this. No edamame but I'm sure my boys won't mind:)

Have not tried edamame. Mind you I've not seen it for sale here, so that doesn't really help! If I do see it, though, I'll definitely be checking it out...
