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.
- 2 cups shelled and frozen edamame
- 1 can chickpeas with of liquid
- 1/2 cup ground walnuts
- 1/2 cup chickpea flour
- 1/2 cup ground flax meal
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1/2 tsp ground coriander
- 2 tsp soy sauce
- salt and pepper to taste
- safflower oil for cooking
Place frozen edamame in strainer and run under warm water until defrosted.
Combine edamame, chickpeas + 1/2 can of liquid, walnuts, garlic, coriander, soy sauce, salt, and pepper in a food processor and process until smooth.
Transfer to a large bowl.
Add chickpea flour and flax meal and mix until just combined.
Place bowl into refrigerator and chill for about 10 minutes.
Form into patties. Set aside what you will be eating, and freeze the rest.
Heat oil in a a medium-large pan and cook patties for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown on each side.
Serve atop your favorite bun, with your favorite accoutrements, and your favorites sides.
