Breakfast Quinoa - Instant Pot, 21 Day Fix Approved

One of the things I missed when following Whole30 was Quinoa, it one of those pseudo-cereals. While it might not technically be considered a grain, it contains properties that could be similarly problematic to your body, which makes it off-limits when following Whole30. I know grains are not problematic for me so I was super excited to give this recipe a go. I found the original recipe thanks to Pressure Cooking Today, which has a ton of great recipes, if you get a chance you should check it out! For this one I added almonds, coconut milk, raspberries and coconut flakes! It was perfect! My youngest enjoyed a bowl with chocolate chips & coconut milk. There are so many ways you can tweak and enjoy!

What you need:
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked quinoa, well rinsed

  • 2 1/4 cups water

  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • pinch of salt

  • Optional Toppings: milk, fresh berries, sliced almonds

What you do:

Add quinoa, water, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and salt to the Instant pot.

Select high pressure and 1 minute cook time. When the pot beeps turn the pot off, wait 10 minutes, and then use a Quick Pressure Release to release any remaining pressure.

When valve drops remove lid carefully

Fluff the quinoa and serve hot with coconut milk, berries and sliced almonds
