I’m continuing with my breakfast theme using quinoa. This time with Apple Cinnamon Quinoa. I served this with soft boiled eggs for Christmas Eve breakfast this year. They all cooked nicely together in the Instant Pot at the same time. The quinoa nestled nicely on the bottom, and the eggs happily sitting on their trivet above.
* Note: I have an 8 quart Instant Pot. Adjust the recipe as necessary for smaller sizes.
Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Quinoa:
2 cups uncooked quinoa, rinsed
3-4 apples, peeled and chopped (I like Gala)
3 tbls butter
1 tbls Cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup agave nectar (or honey, brown sugar, or maple syrup)
3 cups water
Place all these ingredients in your Instant Pot. Cook at high pressure for 1 minute with natural pressure release. This is yummy served warm with a bit of cream on top.
If you want to cook eggs at the same time, place a trivet which will hold eggs in the pot so that it sits above the other ingredients. Stack your eggs on the trivet. Seal the lid. For soft boiled eggs cook for 1 minute at high pressure with natural pressure release. For hard boiled, cook at high pressure for 4 minutes with natural pressure release.
Enjoy your yummy breakfast!
