Print Recipe
This is a healthy, filling, set-and-forget breakfast—put the main ingredients into the pot and let it cook while you get ready for the day. Add more or less milk as you like to the bowls of cooked grain, and vary the toppings according to what’s in season, such as berries in the summer and ripe pears in the fall.

Instructions
  1. Put the quinoa in the Instant Pot®. Add 2 cupsof the almond milk, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and the cinnamon.
  2. Lock the lid in place and turn the valve to Sealing. Press the Pressure Cook button and set the cook time for 2 minutes at high pressure.
  3. Let the steam release naturally for 12 minutes, then turn the valve to Venting to quick-release any residual steam. Carefully remove the lid and fluff the quinoa with a fork.
  4. To serve, divide the quinoa evenly among four bowls. Pour 1/4 cup of the remaining almond milk over each serving, adding more if desired. Top the quinoa with the berries and almonds, drizzle with honey, and serve right away.

    Worked great. I actually used dried blueberries and added them in with the quinoa since we did not have frrsh onhand. Delish!

    This was one of the best breakfasts I’ve made in a while! Super healthy and definitely an energy booster. I would recommend adding spices and getting creative with them.. quinoa can be bland so added spices add some extra depth

    This was great, a change from oatmeal! I did 1 1/2 min on the time because I like my quinoa a little crunchy. Will make again.

    Yum! I always thought I hated quinoa but gave it another try in the instant pot. This was a delicious recipe that turned out beautifully for an easy and nourishing breakfast.

    Perfect every time! One way I like to serve is to heat some frozen blueberries in a bowl, then top it with the cooked quinoa. I don’t usually bother with extra sweetener, it’s really delicious as is. For extra flavor, a dash of almond extract is nice too.

    Hi Ryder,

    Are you using the tabs at the bottom of each recipes to switch between description, ingredients and instructions?

    Used hemp milk instead of almond milk, as I prefer hemp milk. Used two pinches of salt as opposed to the 1/4 tsp, due to a previous reviewer mentioning 1/4 tsp was too much. Freah blueberries to top it off.

    Will make again. Will let my 12m LO try as soon as she wakes, hoping she’ll like it.
