  • To prepare quinoa, add 1 teaspoon olive oil to your pressure cooker bowl.  Rinse your quinoa and add it to the bowl.  Add in vegetable broth.  Seal pressure cooker and cook on high for 1 minute. Allow a 4 minutes natural release.  Remove lid and fluff with a fork.

  • While tomatoes, cook - toast your pine nuts by adding them dry to a small pan.  Toss until lightly toasted.
  • In a small skillet, melt butter.  Add garlic and cook for 1 minute.  Squeeze in the juice of one lemon. Set aside.
  • Combine cooked quinoa, roasted tomatoes, crumbled goat cheese, and lemon butter.  Toss to combine.

Melt butter in pot, saute garlic until fragrant, add lemon juice, mix well. Gently mix quinoa with lemon butter, charred tomatoes, goat cheese crumbles, and toasted pine nuts.
