Avocado edamame breakfast croquettes, my simple recipe

Avocado + edamame !
These green croquettes are really addictive and so easy to make. That’s the 3rd time I make them already.

I have seen them on ads for a chain of fast-food. Apparently they were not the first to make them. The version they propose is deep-fried, served in a bun, with shredded cabbage, a sweet red sauce, a big slice of bacon…in a menu with fries and soda. No, thanks. I’m not a breakfast person and seeing that super-size menu in the morning would make me feel really bad.

That’s what you need. Edamame are green soy beans. In this season I got them frozen, so I defrost and cooked them 3 minutes in the micro-wave. 1/2 avocado, a little lemon juice, jalapeno sauce, salt.

I used a mortar, but a plate and a fork can do the trick. Keep aside 1/4th of the beans, mash the rest. Add seasoning, mash in the avocado. Add the whole beans and form croquettes.

I rolled them in toasted bread crumbs.

In Summer, they’d be nice cool, but it’s a bit chilly. Just reheated them before serving.

Green and creamy inside. Perfect taste ! With a salad and green tea. That’s my brunch.
