Gluten Free Cheesy Quinoa Cakes

KEEN-WAH.

Say it with me people. My lord, how I love this grain…errrr…seed!

Quinoa is the best. Packed with protein and fiber, it’s the powerhouse in my pantry and it doesn’t contain gluten. Miss my first encounter with my love? Catch up here!

This past week I was perusing Pinterest (big surprise I know) when I ran across a picture entitled Cheesy Quinoa Cakes.

Done and Done.

Cheesy Quinoa Cakes

I followed the recipe here, and I just subbed in gluten free all-purpose flour for the regular flour and Robusto cheese for the fontina.

And I skipped the aioli and went with my own favorite drizzle:

Wishbone Buffalo Ranch – so good ya’ll and yep, it’s gluten free to boot!

I found this a few weeks ago on a random trip to Target and swear, I could drink it. I literally have to force myself to measure out a tablespoon serving!

Happy Hump Day!

My spring semester starts today! Eeep! I’m trying out a new workout schedule this semester…here’s hoping I can make the 6am wake up call!
