Heart Healthy Burgers
6 cups of of Instant Oats
1 cup of Quinoa
1 cup of Kañiwa (or another cup of quinoa)
3 cans of Organic Black Beans
2 cans of Organic Large Pitted Black Olives
3 Tbsp of Chia Seeds
Spray Olive Oil
Quinoa and Kañiwa
Start by rinsing the Quinoa and Kaniwa separately. Place rinsed quinoa and kaniwa in 2 separate pots and add 2 cups of cold water and add salt. The ratio is 1:2 (2 cups of water to 1 cup of seed.) Cover them and bring to a boil, when it starts to boil, reduce the heat to a simmer, uncover and cook 15-20 minutes until the water has absorbed completely into the seed, let cool.
Chia Gel (Egg Replacer)
Combine 3 Tablespoons of Raw Chia Seeds in a bowl with room temperature water. Use a 9:1 ratio of water to whole chia seeds. Stir occasionally, gel is done in usually 10-15 minutes.
Forming the Burgers
Take a cookie sheet and spray with the spray EVOO, also spray your hands so the material does not stick. Roll into a tight ball and press on the cookie sheet in the form of a burger patty. Lightly spray the top of the burgers with the oil once they are on the baking sheet. Place in the oven. You can cook up to 2 full sheets at a time. Cook for 8 minutes then flip and cook for another 5 until golden brown.
Let Cool and enjoy!
