Vegan Edamame Burger


A cup of these crunchy little nibbles every day can immensely boost the fiber, protein vitamin and mineral serving of your diet. Edamame is recommended in a heart-healthy diet because of its amazing nutritional value and as a delicious healthy substitute for protein sources that are higher in saturated fat and cholesterol.In case you've missed,here is recap of edamame recipes posted.


Another enticing addition to the list would be the all vegan Edamame burger recipe, almost similar to the Veggie burger ,in this I further enhanced the flavor and nutrition with edamame. The red pepper hummus adds an attractive contrast to this serene green burger.
I use Organic Edamame,available pre-cooked(shelled or in pods) in well stocked super markets under frozen vegetables section.

Ingredients
3 Whole grain Home made Burger Buns
For Burger Patties

2 cups Frozen Edamame beans(baby soy beans),thawed and shelled
1 cup cooked chick peas
1/2 teaspoon black pepper or chilli powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon each of cumin and coriander powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup store bought bread crumbs or 1 whole wheat bread slice ,processed to crumbs.
1 Tablespoon of Extra virgin Olive oil or Canola oil
For Topping
1/2 a cup red Pepper Hummus(as in recipe below)
10-15 baby spinach leaves or other baby greens

Method
Prepare Hummus
Use the same recipe of Hummus,to get the rich red color and added nutrition of red peppers,char the red peppers in broiler or over stove flame(as in this recipe),then blend together with the chickpeas.
Make the Patties
Process all of the ingredients listed under burger patties,peas using a food processor or blender. Do not use any water,blend until coarse ground.Shape in to patties about the size of the buns ,makes about 2-3 medium 1 inch thick patties .
Heat a non-stick pan and lightly grease with oil, roast the patties on both sides just until crust is lightly crisp.
Assemble the Burger
Lightly toast the burger buns and lay the patty,top with a tablespoon of hummus and baby greens and serve.
