4 burger wraps


  • 1 cup julienned carrots

  • 3 tablespoons lime juice, divided

  • 2 teaspoons chile-garlic sauce, divided

  • 1 ½ cups frozen shelled edamame, thawed

  • 1 cup cooked brown rice

  • ½ cup peanut butter powder (see Tip) or 1/4 cup natural peanut butter, divided

  • ¼ cup chopped scallions

  • 1 tablespoon red Thai curry paste

  • 3 tablespoons peanut oil, divided

  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium tamari, divided

  • 4 leaves Bibb lettuce

  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion


  1. Toss carrots with 2 tablespoons lime juice and 1 teaspoon chile-garlic sauce. Set aside.

  2. Combine edamame, rice, 1/4 cup peanut butter powder (or 2 tablespoons peanut butter), scallions, curry paste and 1 tablespoon each oil and tamari in a food processor. Pulse, scraping down the sides as needed, until coarsely chopped. Shape the mixture into four 4-inch-wide burgers.

  3. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the burgers and cook, turning once, until well browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

  4. Meanwhile, whisk the remaining 1/4 cup peanut butter powder (or 2 tablespoons peanut butter), 1 tablespoon each lime juice and tamari and 1 teaspoon chile-garlic sauce in a small bowl until smooth.

  5. Drain the carrots and add the marinade to the peanut sauce; whisk to combine. Serve the burgers in lettuce leaves with the carrots, the sauce and onion.


Tip: With the consistency of flour, peanut butter powder helps bind this veggie burger so it doesn't fall apart. It's made from roasted and pressed peanuts. As with peanut butter, look for a brand with little or no added sugar.

To make ahead: Prepare burgers (Steps 1-2) and refrigerate for up to 1 day before cooking.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
