This slow-cooker porridge recipe features quinoa. Quinoa is a gluten-free pseudocereal (it’s a seed!) that is a nutritional powerhouse and a complete protein. It contains a wide array of vitamins and minerals, including phosphorus, manganese, zinc and iron, many of which Americans don’t get enough of.
