      A healthy twist to the classic rice pudding.  Substitute with quinoa which is 71% water, 21% carbs – mainly starches and fiber, soluble and insoluble (feeds the gut bacteria), 4.4% protein, and 1.3% fat. How’s that for a healthy treat? Give it a Southeast Asian twist by adding rose water & powdered cardamom. Make it vegan by substituting whole milk for almond milk. The possibilities are endless!

      Steps

      1
      Done

      Prepare your quinoa

      Wash 1/2 cup quinoa. In an Instant Pot (or other pressure cooker), add ghee. Turn on sauté mode. Once the ghee is melted, add quinoa to the Instant Pot. Cook for 2 minutes.

      Done

      Add ingredients and cook

      Add milk, heavy cream, sugar, and mix. Seal the Instant Pot on sealing mode. Cancel sauté mode. Cook on slow cook or porridge mode for 30 mins. Let pressure release naturally. Open lid of cooker and mix.

      Done

      Garnish, chill, and enjoy!

      Add cardamom powder, rose water, and chopped almonds. Mix. Chill for 2 hours.

      Tips:

      1) It can be served warm or chilled, but it tastes much better the next day!

      2) If you prefer thicker consistency, then you may have to boil the milk for 30 more mins on sauté mode after cooking on porridge / slow cook mode.
