Quinoa with Sriracha? Even a non-quinoa fan would enjoy these Spicy Quinoa Cakes. They are quick to assemble and packed with healthy goodness. In fact, when I’m completing the 21 Day Fix, I adjust a few elements to make it 21 Day Fix Approved.

I serve these Spicy Quinoa Cakes as a healthy appetizer when hosting guests. This girl loves her jalapeño poppers and brie but sometimes a healthy change of pace is needed. Particularly when swimsuit season is around the corner, and I refuse to wear a one piece. Fair warning – I will be the 80 year old you spot at the beach in a bikini. #fact

Worried about the spice? The recipe lists 1/2 cup Sriracha buy you can cutback if you like just a touch of spice. For me, I kick it up a notch by dipping the cakes into a mixture of Sriracha and Greek Yogurt.

TIP- Make this a 21 Day Fix Recipe by using wheat Breadcrumbs in place on the Panko and replace the Sriracha with your favorite Mexican hot sauce.
