Pineapple Black Bean Quinoa - Pressure Cooker

🍍Pineapple Black Bean Quinoa . I'm so obsessed with this right now, I made a batch of it in my Sunday Prep to portion out as snacks for the week in the Pressure Cooker! 😉 It's wonderful as a snack or dinner! . What you need... 1/2 onion, diced 1/2 red bell pepper, diced

~2 tsp olive oil 1/4 tsp cumin 1/4 tsp paprika 1/8 tsp turmeric 14 oz. can Coconut Milk, shaken 15 oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained 12 oz. package Quinoa, rinsed 20 oz. can pineapple chunks in juice (no sugar added) ~2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped 2 whole green onions, chopped salt to taste, optional . Add onion and bell pepper to the Pressure Cooker, drizzle with olive oil and turn to sauté setting. Saute for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until they begin to soften, add in spices and 2 cups quinoa and sauté for 1 minute, stirring to combine. Meanwhile, combine the juice from the pineapple & coconut milk, reserving pineapple chunks. This should equate to about 3 cups of liquid. You will then add water to reach a total of 4 cups liquid. Add the coconut milk, pineapple juice, water mixture to the pot, scraping the bottom to deglaze any bits. Pour in black beans, stir to combine , place the top on the pressure cooker with steam nozzle in sealed position. Press Manual and set the pressure cooker to 9 minutes. When it reaches it's Keep Warm phase, allow to cook for 5 minutes for a natural release, then carefully turn nozzle to open position and allow remaining steam to release. Stir in pineapple, green onion and cilantro and serve warm or cold! . 🐟Quinoa is a complete protein all on it's own, but it pairs nicely with grilled fish, shrimp, 🍗honey balsamic chicken or grilled pork tenderloin! 🌿Or over Greens! 😉
