Sprouted Rice and Quinoa in Instant Pot

I hear all the time is it possible to make Healthy recipes in your Instant Pot.  The answer is yes, you just have to make them health.  If you find a recipe you like then instead of using rice or pasta you can sub it out.  I do that for my husband’s weekly meal plan.  He loves so much that I thought I would share with you how I make.

Sprouted Rice and Quinoa in Instant Pot

Ingredents to make enough for 4 people or 4 days

How to make

You will first clean your Sprouted Rice and Quinoa in the sink.
Next you will place your Sprouted Rice and Quinoa in your Instant Pot
and the water plus salt and pepper.  
Last you will place your Instant Pot on manual mode on high pressure and
cook for 13 minutes then let it natural release for 10 minutes.  
If there is still pressure after that open your valve.



  1. What proportion of rice-quinoa blend is this for? I tried this with a mix of 2/3 sprouted rice and 1/3 quinoa (my usual mix by rice cooker) and the result was a soup-porridge consistency…thanks!

  2. I used this recipe, and my mix came out mushy and nasty. I would recommended less water, and possiably less time.
    I will play around with the ratio the next time I make it.

  3. I did the tru roots blend, 2 c rice 3 c water, 2tsp oil and some salt and pepper, high pressure for 13 min, npr for 10 and it is absolutely perfect! Fluffy, not mushy, no water left over, not burnt or sticky. Thank you!

  4. So I had the same blend of rice/quinoa and was so confused as to how I would cook it in an instant pot. I searched a lot of recipes and found yours, but I must confess I was nervous after reading the comments. I have to say your instructions couldn’t be more perfect!I did add some things like onion, garlic, some seasonings etc, but what really made it perfect was your recipe instructions. I can’t thank you enough!!

  5. I did 2c rinsed blend, scant 3c water, 1tsp salt, 1tbsp oil, pressure cooked 13 min with 10 min release. Removed, fluffed with a fork, and it was perfect. This website’s recipe is bound to be mushy because the water ratio is way too high. Pressure cooked grains should be closer to 1:1 (depending on the type of grain – some are closer to 2:1 water to grain).
