|Quinoa and Black Beans, cooked in the slow cooker with Mexican Seasonings. (Photo from 365 Days of Slow Cooking.)|
Although I'm a big fan of cooking rice in the slow cooker, I haven't tried using it for quinoa, so when I saw this recipe for Slow Cooker Mexican Quinoa and Black Beans from 365 Days of Slow Cooking, I was intrigued with the idea. Then I realized how perfect this was for our Slow Cooker Summer Dinners, as well as being a wonderful idea for Meatless Monday and I liked Karen's idea even more. Quinoa is a high-protein seed with a slightly nutty flavor that's cooked as a grain; pronounced "keen-wah."
