DIRECTIONS

  • Cook 1/4 cup of dry Teff in 1 cup boiling water. Simmer on low boil until liquid is almost gone.
  • Add the ground flax seed (3 Tablespoons) and chia seed (2 Tablespoons) to the hot Teff. Stir until you reach the consistency or thick oatmeal.
  • Drain the liquid from a 15.25 ounce can of black beans with a strainer. Do not rinse the beans. Place the beans into a bowl and mash with a potato masher.
  • Add the Teff mixture to the beans and mash together until well blended.
  • Add the extra lean ground beef (I use 96% lean/4% fat) and mix together well.
  • Add the extra lean ground turkey (I use 99% lean/1% fat) and mix well
  • Add all seasonings and Mix until evenly combined.
  • Spray hands with non-stick cooking oil spray (I use Olive Oil) and Roll into 2.5 ounce balls.
  • Shape into patties.
  • Fry on high in non-stick pan sprayed with cooking oil.
  • Serve on a bun or lettuce wrap with your favorite condiments.
  • Enjoy!
