Directions

  1. In a strainer, rinse quinoa well. Drain. Combine the raw quinoa with 2 cups water. Bring to a boil uncovered. When it starts to boil, cover and simmer 20 minutes or until the water is absorbed and quinoa is light and fluffy. NOTE: When found in nature, quinoa has a coating of bitter-tasting saponins. These occur naturally in the quinoa to prevent insects from eating the plant. Most packaged quinoa will be pre-washed; however it is always a good idea to wash the quinoa again just in case. Fluff with fork, allow to cool. Combine the beans, quinoa, bell peppers, onions, cilantro, and seasonings in a large mixing bowl and mix thoroughly. Add the gluten-free flour and egg replacer then mix thoroughly again. Mash everything to consistency. Form into patties and cook in a little bit of oil on medium high heat until heated through and golden brown.
