Quinoa-Wrapped Cabbage Burgers

hubby was sent out of town for work, so I am definitely going into sleep-early-wake-early-workout-hard-gotowork-come-home-wait-patiently mode. All I want is my bed, and for him to come back. Thankfully, his sickly symptoms all went away and he's feeling so much better than a few nights ago! God gave him so much strength, I just pray he can get through this next day or two nicely.

In short: this post will be a speedy one.

  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup puffed millet
  • 2 tbsp wheat germ
  • 1 tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • baking powder
  • cinnamon, unsweetened special dark cocoa powder

cabbage burgers!

adapted from this recipe

stuff 'em with:
  • 1 medium head red cabbage, food processed,
  • 1 cup cooked pinto beans
  • onion
  • red pepper flakes
  • chili powder
  • salt + pepper to taste

folded inside this dough:

  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 package active dry yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons)
  • 2 cups quinoa flour (throw quinoa into a blender and make magic!)
  • 3/4 cup rice milk (scalded and returned to room temperature)
  • salt
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp milled flax, 3 tbsp water)

    "Scald milk over the stove or in the microwave; let cool to room temperature. In a large bowl, add warm water and gently stir in yeast. Let stand 5 minutes, do not stir. The mixture should bubble. Blend in milk, salt, flax egg and flour. Mix well. Turn dough out on a floured surface and knead several minutes until smooth and elastic. (If the dough is tacky, add more flour by the tablespoonful and incorporate. It may need 2 – 4 tablespoons of flour. The final dough should be supple and smooth without being overworked.) Place dough in a lightly greased bowl. Cover bowl with damp cloth; let rise 30 minutes in warm location."

fill, wrap, seam side down, onto sprayed baking sheet

bake 375* for 20 minutes or until both sides are golden brown

oh yes!

Amaazing, huh?


Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
