In a food processor or blender, combine cilantro, parsley, edamame, chickpea flour, shallot, garlic, paprika, salt and pepper. Process until well combined and you have a rough mixture — it doesn’t have to be smoothie, just well chopped and forming a bit of a dough sitution.
Transfer to a medium mixing bowl and fold in the egg until everything is well-combined. Let the mixture stand in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Form into patties. Heat a good amount of avocado or olive oil (enough to cover the base of the skillet and a little more) in a cast iron skillet over a medium-high heat. Put patties in the skillet and cook for 5-7 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Transfer to a paper towel and repeat with remaining patties.
Serve with desired toppings.
