It's honestly really exciting to try new recipes in a pressure cooker, but the ones I've loved the most so far are basic like this one.
While I am new to the whole pressure cooker game and honestly the quinoa game, I found a winner recipe for both! I love that quinoa can be a healthier substitute for rice and it still fills you up. It also soaks up the sauce in your lunch or dinner oh so beautifully. ;)
Pressure Cooker Quinoa
Adapted from Hip Pressure Cooking
1 cup quinoa
1 1/2 cup water
1 pinch salt
1. Place the quinoa in a *fine-mesh strainer and rinse under cold water for a few minutes using your hands to rub the grains together.
2. Place the quinoa, water and salt in an electric pressure cooker. Close and lock the lid of the pressure cooker.
3. Cook for 1 minute at high pressure. Unplug the pressure cooker and open the lid when the pressure indicator/lid-lock has gone down (about 15 to 20 minutes).
4. Fluff quinoa with a fork and serve.
*If you need a good fine-mesh strainer, I purchased this one last week and love it.
