How to Cook Red Quinoa in the Instant Pot

Quinoa is one the quickest, easiest, and healthiest things you can make in your Instant Pot. But, if you’ve ever tried to make the red variety of quinoa in your pressure cooker using the same method as white quinoa, you may have discovered that it doesn’t exactly come out the same way!

Red quinoa inherently has a bit more of a bite than white quinoa regardless of cooking method (think of brown rice vs white), but if you throw your red quinoa into the pressure cooker for just one minute, you will be sorely disappointed.
