Instant Pot Quinoa | Simple, Healthy Side & Ready in 15 Minutes!



⭐️ Oil Spray

⭐️ 1 cup Quinoa

⭐️ 1.5 cups Water



  1. Spray bottom of Instant Pot with oil spray (some olive oil works too).
  2. Place the quinoa in a strainer and rinse well, until the water is clear.
  3. Add the rinsed quinoa and water to the Instant Pot.
  4. Seal the lid & set to pressure cook High for 5 minutes. *IMPORTANT* Make sure the “Keep Warm” button is OFF or it will burn!
  5. After the 5 minutes pass & the quinoa is finished cooking, leave the Instant Pot to self-release/natural release for 10 minutes (AKA: DO NOT release steam right away). Let the Quinoa sit for 10 minutes before releasing the rest of the steam.
  6. Once the 10 minutes is up, release the rest of the steam.
  7. Fluff with a fork, then serve!


Ta-da!  💫
