These delicious, meat-free Edamame Quinoa Burgers wrapped in lettuce leaves are so tasty and so satisfying, you won’t even miss the bun (or the meat!).

Since one burger counts as one SmartCarb and one PowerFuel, each makes a perfect women’s flex lunch. Men who’d like to enjoy this meal at lunch can simply eat both servings. Those (men or women) who’d prefer to enjoy this healthy meal at dinner can stick with one serving and just top the burger with a PowerFuel like cheese.
