Add 30-50gr mushroom and 1 chopped bell pepper. Remove from heat and set aside. Let cool and move onto the next step.
Add 240gr chickpeas to the food processor with 240gr edamame. Process until well mixed in. You might have to stop a couple of times to scrape down the sides and start it up again before it will start to mix properly. Transfer to the mixing bowl.

Then get in there with your hands and then either form each section into a burger shape with your hands or pat down into a round cutter to make a nice flat patty shape.
Add 2-3tbsp olive oil to a frying pan and then add the patties. Fry for 5 minutes on medium high heat or until golden on each side for about 2-3 minutes per side.
Place patties on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake at 180˚C for about 8-10minutes.
Remove burgers patties from the oven to let cool slightly, and prepare any other toppings/sides at this time (such as grilling/toasting your buns).

This is a veggie burger that even hearty meat-eaters will love!
If you’re cooking on the grill then make sure the grill is lightly oiled so the burgers won’t stick. They’re ready when they are nicely browned on both sides.
To freeze for later, cook burgers as instructed on grill or skillet. Then set on a baking sheet or plate and freeze. Once frozen completely, seal in a freezer-safe bag or container and store for up to 3 weeks. Reheat in a 375 degree F oven on a bare baking sheet for 20-30 minutes, or until warmed through and golden brown (or in the microwave for 1-2 minutes).
