Edamame Falafel Burgers

Makes 4 burgers 

Herby, green, and delicious. Vegetarian recipe with a vegan option.


  • ¼ packed cup cilantro
  • ¼ packed cup parsley
  • 1 ½ cups shelled edamame beans thawed, if frozen
  • ½ cup chickpea flour
  • 1 medium shallot
  • 1 garlic clove
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 1 egg or chia egg 2 tablespoon ground chia seeds + 6 tablespoons water

Ideas to serve

  • Yogurt herb sauce
  • Cucumbers
  • Hummus
  • Tomato
  • Lettuce or arugula


  1. 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.

  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Serve with desired toppings.
