Have you ever had quinoa for breakfast? Quinoa can be very versatile. I have used quinoa in cookies and stir fries in the past, but this was my first try eating quinoa for breakfast. 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.
I love my crock pot. Do you? Crock pot meals are so easy. Throw everything in, turn on and walk away. I try to make everything I can in the crock pot. Especially soups. This black bean soup is no exception. I already have a white bean soup on the blog, so I thought it was about time to add a crock pot black bean soup to the mix.
I have been wanting to do a white bean chili for quite some time. Problem is, I wasn’t sure how to make a white bean chili. So naturally, I ask my husband who is the chili expert in the house. He also created the delicious sweet potato chili that is already on the blog. I was very pleased with his recipe for this white bean chili as well. This white bean chili recipe is so simple and it can be made in the crock pot when you are not even home! To me, those are the best kinds of recipes.
