1. Most packaged quinoa has been pre-rinsed to remove the saponin to reduce the bitterness. If necessary, give it a quick rinse with cold water, and drain well.

  2. Optional Step: Press Saute then wait 1 minute. Pour in 1 tbsp olive oil, then add in the quinoa.

  3. Toast the quinoa until fragrant (~2-3 mins).

  4. Add in salt and chicken stock or cold water. Use a wooden spoon to scrub the bottom to make sure no quinoa is stuck to the bottom.

  5. Close lid and pressure cook:
                - Toasted Quinoa: High Pressure 0 minute, then 10 minutes. Natural Release
                - Non-Toasted Quinoa: High Pressure 0 minute, then 12 minutes. Natural Release

  6. Release the remaining pressure after the natural release time.

  7. Fluff quinoa & serve. You can use quinoa as a side dish, toss into your salads or soups.
