3 Sisters Casserole

A Native American classic that proves eating vegetarian can be both comforting and healthy.


  1. In a large bowl, combine beans and water, soak 3 hours or overnight. Drain beans, reserve.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together ground quinoa, corn masa, basil, olive oil, ¼ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper and 3 cups vegetable broth.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients in slow cooker; mix thoroughly. Top with quinoa mixture. Cook on high for 5 hours or low for 10 hours. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

TIP: To cut down prep time, use canned Great Northern Beans instead of dry. Drain and rinse the beans before adding to the slow cooker. No soaking required!
