Pressure Cooker Quinoa Tips
- You do want to lightly oil (or use cooking spray) this instant Pot insert so as to avoid the quinoa sticking.
- Quinoa can be stored in the fridge for up to a week no problem. Any extra can be frozen for later.
- Toasting the quinoa before cooking adds an extra depth of nutty flavour to it.
- Cook the quinoa using broth/stock for extra added flavour. Alternatively, you can add in citrus zest, fresh chopped herbs, spices, chilli and more.
