Instant Pot Quinoa
This tasty quinoa made in the Instant Pot is perfect in so many ways, and it is perfect for meal planning. With only a few ingredients, the true nutty flavors of quinoa truly stand out with just salt and pepper.
- 1 cup quinoa
- 1 1/2 cups water
- spray cooking oil like avocado oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- pepper to taste
Rinse quinoa very well with water. Spray evenly with avocado oil.
Transfer quinoa to pressure cooker and add salt and pepper. Combine evenly with spoon or rubber spatula.
Turn on Instant Pot to manual high pressure. Cook for 2 minutes. Let Instant Pot naturally release pressure for 10 minutes before doing a quick release. Serve.
- Make sure the Instant Pot lid is in the locked position so it can cook the quinoa.
- Let the quinoa manually release pressure for 10 minutes (valve turned as far as it will go to the right-almost to 11 o'clock).
- To do quick release pressure, turn the steam valve down to the left. You will hear the pressure release.
