Kañiwa Cheese Burger

Kañiwa, a cousin of quinoa, is a tiny nutrient-rich grain that cooks up to a crunchy texture.

 

2 cups water

½ cup raw Pereg Natural Foods Kañiwa

1 cup water

1 cup cooked chickpeas, smashed, with the skins removed

½ cup Pereg Natural Foods Fine Panko

1 large egg whisked

1 garlic clove minced

¼ cup white onion, minced

¼ tsp. smoked paprika

½ tsp. kosher salt

¼ tsp. cracked black pepper

2 Tbsp. coconut oil

Cheese to taste (The Cheese Guy recommends a creamy, easy-melting Gouda or Havarti)

Combine kañiwa and water in a medium saucepan and bring water to a boil. Lower to a simmer, cover, and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until tender and the water is absorbed. Remove from heat and let cool. You should have 1 cup cooked.

Combine kañiwa with smashed chickpeas, panko, garlic, onion and spices. Form into two big patties or four smaller patties.  Fry 4-5 minutes per side in coconut oil over medium heat until outside is brown and inside is heated through. Melt cheese over top and serve.

Upgrade Your Summer Music Experience

Hey, music lovers!  We wanted to share a way to elevate your wireless music experience.  Just in time for summer, Ultimate Ears has cool updates for MEGABLAST and BLAST portable speakers to help them get smarter and better over time.

How

Enhanced controls on the Ultimate Ears app: You can now control volume remotely from the app, which is especially useful if you have your music cranked up loud and want to use Alexa. You can also check battery status in two ways - either through the app, or right from the speaker by pressing the “+/-” volume buttons simultaneously. Starting in May, you can personalize your sound for any artist or music genre with the custom equalizer (EQ).

  • Voice control on Spotify and more (coming soon): Just ask “Alexa, play my Discover Weekly” or any music from Spotify on MEGABLAST and BLAST. Spotify will soon join other Amazon Alexa supported music services such as Amazon Music, Deezer and TuneIn globally; and Pandora, iHeartRadio and SiriusXM in the U.S. -- use your voice to control music from these streaming services over Wi-Fi. On Bluetooth, you can enjoy music from any of your favorite music services.

 

  • A better way to listen with Spotify Connect (coming soon): MEGABLAST and BLAST will be the first Ultimate Ears speakers to integrate Spotify Connect. When on Wi-Fi, open the Spotify app on your phone and play music directly to our speakers (under “Devices Available”) without the need to pair through Bluetooth. Music fans can also stream the highest quality sound possible from Spotify. With Spotify Connect, text message or make calls without interrupting the music and save your phone's battery.

 

  • New grouping experience for smart speakers (coming soon): You can group up to eight MEGABLAST and BLAST speakers on Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Stereo mode is supported when you connect two MEGABLAST or BLAST speakers. Optimized to take advantage of the speakers’ built-in Wi-Fi capability, you will experience greater range for grouped speakers and improved connection reliability. Grouping is expected to be available later this year.
