  • 1 cup quinoa
  • cups water

For the Bowl:

  • cups cooked quinoa
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon honey optional
  • 1 banana sliced
  • 2 tablespoon nuts of choice, chopped or sliced
  • ½ cup dairy-free milk almond, soy, oat, etc.
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds optional
  • 8 blueberries


To Cook the Quinoa

  • Rinse the quinoa well and add it to the cooker. Add the water and close the lid.
  • Pressure cook on HIGH pressure for 1 minute. When the time is up, release pressure using the natural release method.
  • Electric cookers: turn off the Keep Warm function and allow the pressure to release naturally.
  • Stovetop pressure cookers: remove the pot from the hot burner and allow the pressure to release naturally.
  • Strain and cool the quinoa. Once cooked, it will be almost double the volume.

To Assemble the Bowls

  • Put the pre-cooked quinoa in a bowl and add the cinnamon, cardamom, and milk. If you want a sweeter flavor, add a spoonful of honey. Mix gently.
  • Spoon the mixture into two individual bowls. Add the bananas, blueberries, nuts, and chia seeds (if desired). You can also add more milk if you'd like.
