Kaniwa Burger


     If a momma Qunioa and a daddy Quinoa had a baby they would name it Kaniwa...isn't that simply adorable!?  This little grain has many other nicknames including Quechua, Canahua, and Baby Quinoa (because it looks and tastes similar to its botanical relative: Quinoa).  Not only that, it cooks up with a crunchy texture and makes a nutrient rich, delicious super food.  Turn these into Burgers and you have a beautiful main course or side dish!  Each of the 9 servings are only 135 calories, 14g net carbs and 7g protein.  I can't wait for you to try this grain from Pereg, visit www.pereg-gourmet.com for more information and where to buy!  :)

Ingredients for 9 servings~
1/2 cup Kaniwa, cook according to directions
3/4 cup Oats, ground to powder in Magic Bullet/Blender
1 15oz drained can of Garabanzo Beans
1 jumbo Eggs

Dash Salt to taste
Dash Pepper to taste
1 Tablespoon grated Sharp Cheddar per Burger

     Cook Kaniwa according to directions, set aside to cool.  Meanwhile, add remainder of ingredients (except for Cheese) to food processor and blend til well incorporated.  Stir together Garbanzo Bean mixture with cooked Kaniwa, drop by 1/3 cup on to Coconut Oil sprayed skillet, brown on each side.  Top each Burger with Cheese when ready to eat.  Enjoy  :)
