Simply place the Quinoa in a bowl and add around 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup milk/ vegan milk depending on the amount of the cooked Quinoa.

It won’t affect the end result, the oats will just be a little less sweet. Enjoy!

I made this in an 8 quart Instant pot with a pyrex bowl inside on a trivet with one cup of water on bottom. Looked like it wasn't even cooked. Quinoa still individual grains even after letting it sit. Any suggestions?

I made this today in my new Instant Pot Duo Evo Plus. Came out great and did thicken up as it cooled so allow for time if you are planning to serve right away.
