Buffalo Quinoa Mac and Cheese

Buffalo Quinoa 'Mac' & Cheese

1-1/4 cups quinoa, rinsed and drained
salt & pepper
2 Tablespoons flour
1-1/2 cups skim milk, divided
2 green onions, sliced
1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons Frank’s Buffalo Wing Sauce
1-1/2 cups shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled
1. Preheat broiler. Cook quinoa according to package directions and set aside.
2. Whisk together flour and 1/2 cup milk in a separate saucepan over medium heat. Pour in remaining milk, and green onions. Switch to a spatula and bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly, then cook for one minute while boiling.
3. Remove the pan from the heat then add in buffalo sauce and cheddar cheese. Season with a few dashes of salt and pepper. Stir until the cheese is completely melted then add in cooked quinoa, and stir to combine.
4. Pour into a non-stick sprayed casserole dish and top with chevre. Broil for 5-7 minutes, or until the cheese is golden brown and sauce is bubbly. You can also use individual ramekins (I did).
Serves 4
