    You probably don’t hear of many people eating (or serving) quinoa for breakfast, but why not? Quinoa contains all 9 essential amino acids, making it a powerhouse source of vegetarian protein.

  • Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 cups uncooked quinoa, well rinsed
    • 2 1/2 cups water
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • Pinch of salt
    • Topping options include peaches, bananas, sliced berries (fresh, frozen or canned), sliced almonds, milk (dairy or non-dairy), more spices to taste (cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.)

    Instructions

    1. Add quinoa, water, cinnamon, vanilla and a pinch of salt to Instant Pot.
    2. Close lid on the Instant Pot, making sure the knob is set to sealing. Select manual, high pressure, for 8 minutes.
    3. When the beep sounds, turn the knob to venting to release any remaining pressure. Once valve drops, remove the lid.
