    1. Diana, I still get 11 SmartPoints. To reduce the points, have 1 cup as the serving size instead of 1 1/2 cups.

  1. I tried making this on high for 2 hours but the potatoes and onions were still completely raw and the quinoa was uncooked. Are the times accurate?

    1. Shara, I tweaked the recipe, please take a look. I would recommend dicing the oinion and potatoes.

  2. Hi could i just use a pot instead of slow cooker for like an hour and without blending the beans .
