We love the creative use of quinoa in this recipe written by Melissa King of My Whole Food Life. She points out some great advantages about this main ingredient…

“Quinoa is naturally gluten free, so it’s a great alternative to oatmeal.  This slow cooker breakfast quinoa was much better than I ever expected!  Slow cooking the quinoa allowed the sugars in the dates and apples to come out.  I added no sugar at all to this slow cooker breakfast quinoa.”- Melissa King,  My Whole Food Life
