1 cup Carrots, julienned
3 tbsp Lime juice, divided
2 tsp Chile-garlic sauce, divided
1 ½ cup Thawed frozen shelled edamame
1 cup Brown rice, cooked
¼ cup Scallions, chopped
1 tbsp Thai red curry paste
3 tbsp. Peanut oil, divided
2 tbsp Reduced-sodium tamari, divided
1 cup Red onion, thinly sliced
Mix carrots with 2 tbsp lime juice and 1 teaspoon chile-garlic sauce in a large mixing bowl. Place aside.
In a food processor, combine the edamame, rice, ¼ cup peanut butter powder (or 2 tablespoons peanut butter), scallions, curry paste, and 1 tablespoon oil and tamari. Pulse until coarsely chopped, scraping down the sides as needed. Make four 4-inch-wide burgers with the mixture.
- In a large nonstick pan over medium heat, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil. Cook the burgers for 3 to 4 minutes per side, flipping once, until nicely browned. Place the dish on a platter.
In a small mixing bowl, whisk the remaining ¼ cup peanut butter powder (or 2 tablespoons peanut butter), 1 tablespoon lime juice, 1 tablespoon tamari, and 1 teaspoon chile-garlic sauce until smooth.
- Drain the carrots and whisk together the marinade and peanut sauce. Serve the burgers with carrots, sauce, and onion in lettuce leaves.
- Peanut butter powder, which has flour consistency, helps this veggie burger stay together. Peanuts that have been roasted and crushed are used to make this snack. Look for a brand with minimal or no added sugar, just like peanut butter.
- Make the burgers ahead of time (Steps 1-2) and store them in the refrigerator for up to 1 day before cooking.
