Quinoa Burgers

They’re moving my bedroom furniture in to both rooms! So exciting for me! The workers are laughing because I’ve never seen my bed before. It was packed and taped and moved to the back of the furniture so tightly on the back porch, and is so dang heavy, I couldn’t get in there to see it! It’s beautiful, hand-carved furniture made of eucalyptus, all matching, seriously thick, dark wood and all curved, muy rustico (very rustic)! I love it so much. Read the post (Mashed Papitas) on how I came upon the furniture for the whole house in one go, and didn’t have to shop for it!

Tip of the Day – 1) To cook quinoa, rinse 1 cup uncooked quinoa in a fine mesh strainer. Place quinoa in a medium pot and cover with 1 1/2 cups water. Bring to a low boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and then cover with a tight fitting lid. Simmer covered for 14-17 minutes until most of the water is absorbed and the quinoa is light and fluffy. Remove from heat, fluff with a fork, and then place lid back on to steam for another 4-5 minutes. This makes almost 3 cups of cooked quinoa . You only need half for this recipe. To sprout quinoa, soak for 1.5 hours, drain and let it sprout for 1 -1.5 days.

2) To make oat flour, add the oats into a high speed blender and blend on the highest speed until a fine flour forms.
