When you’ve been hanging round these elements for some time, you’ll know that I’m a giant fan of my stress cooker. Particularly, my Prompt Pot. And in the event you proceed to hold round these elements for some time (yay!), you’ll both begin utilizing the Prompt Pot you have already got, otherwise you’ll purchase one and begin utilizing all of it the time as an alternative of being afraid of it (ahem, Erin). That’s as a result of I’m on a mission to persuade you that the Prompt Pot is an Equipment You Want.
That is the first of many tutorials on cooking staples in the Pressure Cooker/Prompt Pot. Since there’s already a tutorial on learn how to prepare dinner the excellent quinoa on the stovetop, it solely made sense to make the quinoa model in the stress cooker. And the excellent news is that it is even simpler and extra foolproof than cooking quinoa on the stovetop.
all it’s essential bear in mind is the no 1.
You might do not forget that the key to cooking the excellent quinoa on the stovetop is to make use of much less water, particularly 1.25 elements water to 1 half quinoa. in the stress cooker, you want even much less water, simply 1 cup. why precisely? Properly, I am not a scientist, however my (tremendous)remark powers have resulted in the following speculation:
Whenever you prepare dinner one thing in water on the range, a few of the water evaporates as an alternative of being absorbed by no matter you are cooking. in a stress cooker there isn’t a evaporation, so rather less water is required. this works in our favor as a result of it makes stress cooking quinoa really easy that even a novice prepare dinner can do it.
that is the way it works:
1 half water 1 half quinoa 1 minute at excessive stress
enable a pure launch of stress and you should have the excellent quinoa!
oh, however first! here is one thing so cool that it’s going to make your quinoa much more excellent. it would be best to toast the quinoa earlier than cooking it.
beth, actually? Would you like me to place my quinoa in a toaster?
heck to the finish. I imply, you need to toast the quinoa in the stress cooker. mainly simply warmth the stress cooker over medium warmth (use the sauté operate on the Prompt Pot) and add the quinoa. stir it for about 5 minutes, till it begins to scent good, toasty. it actually makes a distinction to the closing texture. you may skip it in order for you, however do not.
That is gentle and fluffy quinoa completely cooked proper there. use instantly or portion into freezer luggage and freeze till you want quinoa. it is so good to have it able to go everytime you need.
and you may wish to have it prepared whenever you do that.
triple broccoli and quinoa. it is coming.
