Lightly grease the insert of a 6-quart Instant Pot with nonstick cooking spray.
Rinse the quinoa in a fine mesh strainer with cool water and drain. Dump the quinoa into the bottom of the Instant Pot. Add the water and salt and give the quinoa a quick stir.
Secure the lid on the Instant Pot, set the valve to seal, and cook on high pressure for 3 minutes (select the manual or pressure cook button and dial up or down to 3).
When the cooking time has finished, quick release the pressure. Fluff the quinoa with a spoon and use immediately or refrigerate to serve later.
Instant Pot Tips: if you aren't around to quick release the pressure, it doesn't hurt the quinoa to let the pressure naturally release (and it can even hang out for a while on the warm setting). The quinoa will be softer this way, so if you like a hint of an al dente bite to your quinoa, you'll want to quick release the pressure.Increasing the Quantity: you can easily double or triple this recipe (increase all ingredients) depending on the size of your Instant Pot. Cooking time should stay the same.
