For quinoa cakes:
Prepare quinoa according to package directions.
Combine quinoa, cheese, flour, green onion, egg, jalapeño, salt and pepper together in a medium bowl. Stir until well blended.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Form quinoa mixture into small patties (about 1/4 cup mixture for each). Place a few patties at a time in heated skillet. Cook approximately 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Keep quinoa cakes warm while frying remaining cakes.
Combine mayonnaise, garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest and cayenne pepper in the bowl of a food processor. Blend until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with warm quinoa cakes.
