Macrobiotic Soy Hamburger Patties

Macrobiotic Soy Hamburger Patties

This is a hamburger that uses boiled soy beans in place of ground meat. If I didn't tell you it was made of soy beans, maybe you wouldn't even notice the difference?

Ingredients: 2 servings

Boiled soy beans
200 g
Dried shiitake mushrooms (rehydrate with water)
Peanuts (or you can omit them)
20 g
1 small piece
Salt and pepper
a small amount
Dried sage
2 leaves
a small amount
Japanese-style Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon
1 teaspoon
1 tablespoon


1. Mince the rehydrated shiitake mushroom, roughly-cut onion, and peanuts in a food processor.
2. Mince the garlic and cook in a frying pan with oil. Once fragrant, add Step 1 and cook. Flavor with salt and pepper.
3. Mince the boiled soy beans in the food processor.
4. Combine the soy beans, the cooked vegetables, a little salt and pepper, nutmeg, sage, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, and the katakuriko in a bowl and mix.
5. Make into oval shapes and cook in a frying pan for 3 to 4 minutes until browned. Close with a lid and try not to move them as much as possible.
6. How to make the sauce; not listed in the ingredients: Mix 2 tablespoons each of ketchup and Worcestershire sauce in the frying pan and heat.

Story Behind this Recipe

I had a lot of soy beans at home so I decided to make hamburger patties.
