Edamame Anytime — Meatless Monday

Though typically eaten raw and simply by the handful, edamame are incredibly versatile and can easily be pureed, sautéed or boiled. Packing a hefty protein punch, these teeny green lima-like beans are a go-to vegetarian option. Our meatless menu below offers diverse dishes celebrating the innate flavor and bright color of summertime edamame.

For a meatless burger that can be enjoyed year round, try an Edamame Veggie Burger (pictured above) from Food Network Kitchens. Made with pureed edamame, freshly grated carrots and radishes and Asian spices, these moist patties are filled with fiber and easily broiled in the oven.

As a simple side or hearty lunch, this Edamame Pasta Salad With Tahini Dressing from Food.com is a go-to favorite. Tender edamame is mixed with corn, beans and pasta and laced with a sweet and tangy sugar-tahini drizzle. For a carb-free option, skip the noodles and serve over a mixed-green salad.

With just a handful of ingredients, Mark Bittman lets the natural flavors of edamame shine through in his Edamame Salad from Cooking Channel. Tossed with pecorino cheese and fresh mint, this simple dish is ready in just 10 minutes.

For a quick and easy nibble any day of the week, make an Edamame Guacamole from Food 2. Featuring classic guacamole components such as ripe avocados and lime juice, this healthful dip-style snack will please even the pickiest eaters when served with traditional tortilla or pita chips.
