Cook perfectly fluffy quinoa in just 3 minutes in your pressure cooker! Soaked first to reduce phytic acid and saponins for better digestion, this is the easiest and best way to cook quinoa! Learn how to cook Soaked Quinoa In The Instant Pot!
Cook on high pressure in the "Manual" setting for 3 minutes.
Unless your quinoa was extremely dry or left uncovered and soaking liquid evaporated, you shouldn't be left with less than a cup of soaking liquid.
Never add less than 1 cup of cooking liquid -- even if you caught more than 2 cups of soaking liquid. The Instant Pot requires at least 1 cup of liquid to properly come to pressure.
For example, if you caught 2-1/2 cups of soaking liquid, by my ratios you would only need to add 1/2 cup of cooking liquid. But that's not enough liquid to cause the Instant Pot to come to pressure. So you should add a full cup of cooking liquid anyway.
If there's more than a little bit of cooking liquid left after releasing pressure, cook on high pressure for 1 more minute. That should allow the remaining liquid to absorb.
