Recipe: Quinoa Cauliflower Bowl with Peanut Sriracha

Two recipe posts in a row? I've been one busy girl in the kitchen.

Last week was a busy week for me, but I had to take notes and pictures to share this recipe with you. I stumbled upon the recipe from Vegan Yack Attack earlier last week and knew I had to make it immediately. That spicy Thai-inspired sauce? Gimme. I need it now. While it had a few more ingredients and and steps than recipes I'm normally drawn to, it looked so damn good

For the record, when it was complete, it was even better than I could have imagined. Not kidding. Do yourself a favor and make this tonight. And every night (likely) for the rest of your life.

1. Mix the olive oil, sesame oil, sriracha and ginger in a bowl. Coat the cauliflower in the mixture, and bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes.
2. Wash the quinoa, and stir together with the other ingredients in a pot. Cook until boiling, then allow to simmer until the quinoa has absorbed the liquid.
