Description

Making a multi-serving batch of this Freezer Friendly Instant Pot Quinoa could not be easier! Follow my step-by-step instructions to cut your meal prep time in half. 


Ingredients

  • cooking spray
  • water
  • quinoa

Instructions

  1. Spray your Instant Pot with cooking oil spray. Add in equal parts quinoa and water (I usually do 2 cups of each).
  2. Place lid on your Instant Pot and set for 1 minute using the manual or pressure cook setting. After cook time, allow for a full natural release.
  3. Remove quinoa from your Instant Pot and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper to cool.
  4. Once it’s cool, measure and place into freezer friendly ziplock bags and store flat in your freezer.
  5. To thaw, place quinoa and 1-2 T of water in a microwave and heat for 1-3 minutes.
