Edamame beans are a popular appetizer served at most sushi restaurants. The immature soybeans are usually boiled or steamed and served with salt but this recipe takes the green beans to new culinary heights.

Edamame cakes are a delicious green patty far more unique than the beans themselves. This savory snack features the popular edamame beans, boiling and blending them to make a crispy and healthy pancake. Using only edamame beans, sesame oil, sliced scallions and egg, these seasoned cakes can be cooked and served by the most amateur foodie. Edamame cakes also utilize a fair amount of whole wheat flour to help thicken the green bean mixture and keep ingredients together. These delicious cakes are then fried and served with a side of soy dipping sauce.
