Quinoa Cakes

Made these tonight...both boys seemed fine with them.  That means they can go on permanent rotation ;)

Quinoa Cakes

2 c cooked and cooled quinoa (ie measure it after you cook it)
1/4 c gluten-free flour
1 c shredded cheddar
2 eggs
2 T fresh cilantro, chopped
2 tsp Sriracha
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt

Mix the above ingredients together.  Heat some olive oil in a pan over medium heat.  Drop by spoonfuls into the pan and flatten slightly.  Cook until crispy on one side, flip and cook until crispy on the other side.  Eat and enjoy.

Also, quite good with a bit of my "Ranch dressing"  made into a dip.  Mix 1/2 c of the dressing with 1/4 tsp paprika and 2 T lime juice.
