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.
