Make these delicious Black Bean Edamame Burgers tonight … this is a veggie burger no one can resist!
A good veggie burger is one of those meals that always makes me happy.
I’ve eaten my fair share of the frozen kind, and there may even be some in my freezer right now! A homemade veggie burger is even better though, especially since I can control what’s in them (no mystery ingredients).
I love experimenting with recipes, and these Smokey Black Bean Edamame Burgers are my newest favorite!
Smokey Black Bean Edamame Burgers
These Edamame Veggie Burgers are full of healthy ingredients – quinoa, sauteed vegetables, and edamame – that just happen to taste great, too. Mashed black beans, a little flour, and an egg hold everything together.
I wanted the veggie burgers to have a smokey flavor, so I seasoned them with smoked paprika and cumin, as well as oregano and a little crushed red pepper flakes. The spices give the burgers a wonderful taste, especially when topped with melted cheddar cheese and a “secret” sauce.
All of these ingredients work together to make an irresistible Smokey Black Bean Burger.
