Things like 1 minute quinoa can’t be real?
1 minute quinoa is real… and it isn’t.
In recipes you will see the pressure time (1 minute for quinoa), but you also need to factor in the time to come to pressure, and the depressurizing time as well.
In some cases (like quinoa) this can be a 10 minute “natural pressure release” which just means the post stops actively heating and the pressure just naturally decreases. This is still active cook time.
Even when it isn’t a total time saver, since getting my Instant Pot, I haven’t had a pot of quinoa boil over – which is a huge win when prepping multiple meal components at one time!
