With My Mama in town last week, it felt like the time to try out another idea: edamame burgers. And boy were they a hit. (I’d show you photographic evidence of the eating pleasure, but had to swear on a unicorn horn that I wouldn’t share it with anyone. Sorry.)
They just so happen to pair nicely with garlicky green beans and a side of sweet potato fries.
But the best part? They took a mere 10 minutes to prep, 10 minutes to chill, and another 10 minutes to cook. For those good at math, that’s a deliciously healthy meal in under 30 minutes.
