Mystery Box Day 2: Edamame Burgers

Today's challenge: Three of these four for Monday: celery, sunflower seeds, scallions, edamame.





These turned out DELICIOUS. 

Edamame Burgers with Sunflower Aioli
makes 4 large patties

2 cups frozen edamame, thawed 
1/4 cup hummus
1 tsp dried dill
dash salt
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
About 1 slice of bread's worth of crumbs
1 heaping tbsp golden flaxseed meal

Put all of this in the food processor, and combine until somewhat smooth. Stir in:
4 scallions, thinly sliced

Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a cast iron pan. Fry the patties, about 2-3 minutes each side, until golden brown. Move to paper towels, so they don't get so oily.

Aioli:
1 cup vegan mayo
zest of 1 small lemon
2 garlic cloves, crushed
dash salt
3 tbsp raw sunflower seeds
olive oil (maybe 2 tbsp)

Blend until totally smooth, adding a stream of olive oil until it reaches the perfect consistency. Store in the fridge until ready to use.

Put whatever you want on your burger: tomato, onion, sprouts. Slather with aioli. Grub.

Those look mighty fine! Was the texture soft or firm? Might have to give these a try!
