Cook wild rice 45 to 50 minutes (boil and turn down  to low) until it pops open. 1 cup rice to 2 cups water. Put in colander or strainer drip dry at least 10 minutes. NOTE: if making both recipes make you can the wild rice together after draining separate into two batches.

Cook red quinoa & black quinoa (separately cooked)
20 minutes (boil and turn down  to low)  1 cup quinoa to 2 cups water. Put in colander or strainer drip dry at least 10 minutes.

Peal and steam sweet potatoes and beets. If you have a 2 level steamer cook the beets in the bottom and sweet potatoes on the top. If not you may need to do them separate if doing both recipes
cut the whole pealed sweet potato into 3/4 inch rounds steam 1 hour, DO NOT mash before adding to other ingredients.

Peal beets cut into quarters then slice into 1/4 in. slices steam 1 1/2 hour. Mash beets with potato masher BEFORE adding to other ingredients.

Put the quinoa in a bowl then the un-mashed sweet potatoes, (mashed beets, black quinoa only), spices, except tamari, chopped spring onions and cranberries or cherries save them for later.

Add wild rice then tamari on top of the other ingredients. Mix thoroughly by hand (spatula) shape in bowl so it looks like a round of pizza dough. Put into refrigerator till cool.

After cooling add chopped spring onions and cranberries or cherries. mix thoroughly by hand (spatula), shape in bowl so it looks like a round of pizza dough. Put into refrigerator about 10 minutes.

After cooling shape into 1 1/4 inch balls. Note: put in refrigerator over night uncovered to dry the outside of the balls so they fell less sticky.

Hint: always work with the sweet food first then the spicy.
