I was craving a warm hearty soup this week. Between the cooler temperatures outdoors and my non stop sinus issue, I just needed soup.
One problem. I was sick. I was cranky. And I didn't want to fuss with washing a big soup pan and then another pan that I'd have to prepare the quinoa in.
That's why I decided to go Instant Pot for this.
I can toss the Instant Pot pot/liner in the dishwasher and never give it another thought.
One more problem.
I actually don't know how to cook quinoa in an Instant Pot.
Note to self: Learn how to cook quinoa in an Instant Pot.
I was in no mood for researching and trial and error, so I looked around and saw that I had some brown rice in the pantry. Brown rice is healthy-ish, right?
