You can use breadcrumbs instead of rice crumbs but Erica finds that rice crumbs are a better binding agent. They’re also gluten free. You can have these burgers on their own with a little soy sauce, or in a proper burger with tomatoes, lettuce and a bit of Greek yoghurt. If you freeze them, make sure they are defrosted before you fry them, so that they heat all the way through.
Fry the onions until translucent. Finely chop the mushrooms and fry with a little oil.
Put half the edamame, all the garlic cloves, cashew nuts, egg, salt and pepper into a food processor and blend.
Roughly chop the remaining edamame and combine with mushrooms and the rest of the ingredients, including rice crumbs. Shape into oval patties and fry in a non-stick pan with a little sesame oil, or freeze for later.
