There’s a lot of controversy about soy and whether it’s good for you. My opinion is that in moderation, I feel fine eating it. I look at it this way; I feel better eating an edamame burger and fries than if I went into town and bought a double cheeseburger with giant onion rings and a shake. I like to eat food that tastes good, so we make 90% of our meals at home. We experiment with different spices and ingredients, so we never make the same meal the same way. For example, this edamame burger is what I made last night.
- 32 ounces of shelled edamame
- 1/2 white onion
- 3 garlic cloves
- 1/4 cup of chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 cup of bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup panko
- 2 eggs
- 1/8 teaspoon of Sriracha
- 2 teaspoons of lime juice
- 1/2 teaspoon of smoky paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon of red cayenne pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
- Blend 3/4 of the edamame, cilantro, garlic, 2/3 of the bread crumbs, eggs, sriracha, lime juice and powdered spices in a food processor until thick paste forms.
- Fold in remaining chopped edamame, breadcrumbs and panko to the mixture.
- Form into patties and dredge in flour.
- Heat some of your olive oil in a pan and cook the patties.
- Cook until crispy on both sides.
