Edamame, a popular soybean grown in Asia for centuries, over the past couple years have now flourished on this side of the world. If you’re wondering just what these beans are, well, they’re the bright green, salty pods you can find at your local sushi joint or supermarket.

The beauty of the edamame bean is that it offers up a whole slew of nutritional benefits. It’s high in protein and fiber, rich in vitamins and has anti-inflammatory properties that you certainly want to take full advantage of.

And so with all the nutritional benefits of these beans, and summer just around the corner, what better way to bring a little bright green fun into your life by grilling up an Edamame Veggie Burger. The burgers are a delicious, Japanese take on the traditional veggie burger and are best served with a bunch of wasabi, ginger and sprouts. So take to the grill, you master griller and serve up a healthy rendition of one of those high calorie, fat-packed, juicy burger.
