Ingredients

  • 2 Cups shelled and frozen edamame
  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas
  • 8 Ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 Cup raw cashews, finely ground
  • 1/2 Cup nutritional yeast
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 Teaspoon soy sauce
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3 1/2 Cups chickpea flour
  • Oil, for frying

Directions

Place the frozen edamame and can of chickpeas, including the liquid, in a saucepan and warm through, until the edamame have defrosted.

Combine the edamame, chickpeas and liquid, mushrooms, cashew, yeast, garlic, cumin, soy sauce, salt, and pepper in a food processor, and process until smooth. Pour into a large bowl.

Slowly add the flour, stirring to combine, until a thicker consistency is formed. Depending on the moisture of your mixture you may just need a little flour, or you may need all of it.

Place the entire bowl in your refrigerator for 20-30 minutes to make it easier to handle. Form into 16 patties.

Heat oil in a sauté pan and fry the patties for 4-5 minutes, until golden brown on both sides.

Edamame Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Edamame Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chili peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
