8 cups


  • 4 cup water

  • 2 cup uncooked white quinoa, rinsed and drained

  • 3 cup chopped peeled fresh peaches or frozen sliced peaches, thawed

  • ¼ cup peach preserves

  • 2 teaspoon vanilla

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup heavy cream

  • ½ cup chopped toasted pecans (optional)

  • Honey or brown sugar (optional)

  • Heavy cream or milk (optional)


  1. In a 4- qt. electric or stove-top pressure cooker combine the first 6 ingredients (through salt). Lock lid in place. Set an electric cooker on high pressure 1 minute. For a stove-top cooker, bring up to pressure over medium-high heat; reduce heat enough to maintain steady (but not excessive) pressure. Cook 1 minute. Remove from heat. Let stand 15 minutes to release pressure naturally. Release any remaining pressure. Open lid carefully.

  2. Stir in cream. If desired, sprinkle servings with pecans and drizzle with honey and additional cream.
