If you frequent my site, you are aware of my love for spicy foods. 🙂 My husband and my kids all love some sort of heat in their food as well. I have been trying to come up with new ways to sneak in some more quinoa. I adore quinoa and can eat it plain, but my kids like it mixed in and hidden more. I came up with this yummy dish and my kids loved it! The also had no idea that there were hidden veggies in it as well! 🙂 I ended up making this for dinner a few days later and added some shredded chicken to it and I loved it even more! Its a one dish wonder! 😉 Here is what I came up with :


Buffalo Quinoa Bake

  • 1cup chopped cauliflower
  • 1Tbsp EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
  • 1Tbsp. butter
  • 1cup chopped carrots
  • 2/3cup bleu cheese dressing
  • 1/2brick cream cheese
  • 1/4cup greek yogurt
  • 1/2cup Pepper Jack cheese (I love the Jalapeno jack cheese)
  • half bottle Hot Sauce (I love Louisiana Hot Sauce)
  • 1/3cup Sriracha sauce
  • 1 1/2cup cooked quinoa
  • 2cranks of sea salt
  • 5cranks pf black pepper
  • **I added 2cups cooked shredded chicken for the dinner


Preheat oven 350F

In a large skillet heat up the butter and EVOO over medium heat. Add the carrots and cauliflower.

Once the cauliflower starts to get some color place a lid over top of the pan and let steam for 5min. Keep stirring!!!

Add the remaining ingredients and stir together.

Let simmer over low heat until well combined.

Transfer into a baking dish.

Sprinkle the cheese over top and place in the oven

Bake for 10-15min or until cheese in golden and bubbly.

Cool for 5minutes and ENJOY!! 🙂
