  • 1 cup, rinsed quinoa
  • 1 1/4 cups stock
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Rinse the quinoa with water really well in a fine, mesh sieve to remove the natural coating. ~2 minutes.
  2. Add the quinoa, the stock and salt to the Instant Pot/Pressure cooker. Close/lock the lid and select the Pressure button (or Manual on your PC), HIGH pressure and time for 1 minute. *on the Instant Pot make sure that the “Keep Warm” button is turned off
  3. When the time is up allow for a NPR (natural pressure release) for 15 minutes. Once done, remove any last bit of pressure (if any), remove the lid and fluff with a fork.
