Make healthy Instant Pot Quinoa so fast and easy in the pressure cooker!


  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa (rinsed if the package instructs to do so)
  • 1 ½ cups low sodium chicken broth
  • Pinch of kosher salt


  1. Add all ingredients to the pressure cooker pot, make sure all of the quinoa is immersed.
  2. Secure the lid and turn pressure release knob to a sealed position.  Cook at high pressure for 1 minute.
  3. When cooking is complete, use a natural release.
  4. Stir and fluff quinoa.


  • Some quinoa comes pre-rinsed.  If the package doesn’t say it’s pre-rinsed, place quinoa in a fine mesh sieve.  With quinoa in the sieve, submerge in a bowl of cold water, and agitate the water to rinse it thoroughly.  This will ensure better tasting quinoa
  • Make sure quinoa is completely submerged in the water in the pot before cooking so you aren’t’ left with crunchy, uncooked bites
