Edamame Millet Burgers

Ok, so I can’t wait until tonight to share this new recipe with you guys. I’ve been working on it since last night and just perfected it this morning!

Yes, I got up this morning and made a burger! What can I say…I don’t take defeat very well! If you don’t get something right try, try again go to bed, dream about it and wake up early itching to try something different!

Have you ever tried these little green buttery gems? Edamame is simply the name for green soybeans and they are loaded with nutrition! We’re talking a 1/2 cup serving that clocks in at 100 calories, 3g of fat, 9g carbohydrates, 4g of fiber, and 8g of protein! Definitely a filling snack or the perfect accompaniment to a meal for a good protein boost!

Or, in this case…the perfect VEGETARIAN BURGER!

Edamame Millet Burgers: (serves 2)

  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup finely diced onion
  • 1 small carrot, shredded (about 1/8 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon Bragg’s Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sriracha (optional)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup frozen edamame, thawed in microwave
  • 1/4 cup cooked millet
  • 1/4 cup cashew flour (just throw them in a blender or food processor until ground)
  • 1/2 chia egg (1/2 tablespoon chia seeds mixed with 1 1/2 tablespoons water and allowed to set for 4-5 minutes, or you can use 1 egg white)

1. Saute onion and carrot in sesame oil until tender.
2. Stir in garlic powder, ginger, aminos, sriracha, and salt & pepper.
3. Transfer mixture to a food processor and combine with edamame, millet, cashew flour,     and chia egg (or egg white).
4. Pulse until mixture gets sticky and soybeans are well incorporated.
5. Scoop mixture out of food processor and form into two patties.
6. Place in oven under low broil for 8-10 minutes or until tops are browned and crispy           then flip patties and broil for another 8-10 minutes.

Served atop a bed of mixed baby greens, shredded yellow squash and red bell pepper strips. Garnished with sesame seeds and a drizzle of more sriracha.

Crispy and crunchy on the outside, smooth and buttery on the inside!

The variations of grains and flours are pretty much limitless. I think it would also be pretty tasty with quinoa and chickpea flour as would brown rice and a little cornmeal!

Well, I’m off to enjoy some of the beautiful weather Tennessee is having…up to 75 degrees today as well as a trip to the salon for a trim and a deep tissue massage afterwards! Ahhh!

What’s your favorite way to eat edamame?
It love it straight up as a snack or mixed up as a one bowl dinner like this one, but now that I’ve had an Edamame Millet Burger, it’s going to be hard deciding!

  1. Ok why have i never thought to put edamame in my burgers? That’s simply genius! They look great!!

    My husband was just saying last night that he wanted me to make homemade veggie burgers. I think I’ve found my recipe! I normally just take black beans, mash them and put cooked brown rice in a food processor until it makes a paste and then mix it all together to make patties. It’s easy and turns out pretty well!

    Uh hi YUM!!! These would probably work with other grains and flour no? Have a great weekend beautiful!

  4. Amazing. Love millet. Love edamame. I can’t wait to try!! I recently made black bean burgers which were great. I’m sad they’re gone and this might just be the veggie burger that fills the void…

    That looks good. I will be making it soon! For some reason, my husband hates edamame so I’ll have to make it on a day when he’s not home!

  14. I definitely need to make these. I’m not a huge fan of edamame by itself, but my mom buys it all the time, and we have a bag in our freezer that’s probably a year old!
