Mealthy Tip

If you don't have broth at your disposal, this recipe also works great with just water! This recipe calls for both dried and fresh cilantro. Dried cilantro offers a muted, almost herbaceous flavor while fresh cilantro offers a bright and crisp distinctive citrus-like flavor.

I LOVED this dish! The lime and cilantro give great flavor to the quinoa, but what I loved most is how light and fluffy it turned out. This is the perfect side dish, and a nice switch from eating rice all the time

The only way my wife can get me to eat quinoa is with this cilantro lime recipe. I made it for her initially, tried it for myself and am now hooked. The pressure cooker allows the quinoa to soak in all the incredible flavor from the lime and cilantro.

It's hard to get my partner excited about quinoa, but the lime and cilantro made for a great Mexican flavor base to top with chicken. + avacado.

It's hard to get the family into quinoa, but this was before I knew about this recipe. The lime and cilantro add such great flavor to a healthy alternative. It came out perfectly fluffy!

This cilantro lime quinoa is one of my favorites. I've traditionally made it with white or brown rice, but this is more nutritious and a little different. I even got my kids to eat it. Also, I did use water instead of broth.

This is one of my favorite MultiPot recipes. I replaced the dried cilantro with fresh because I don’t care for dried cilantro. This recipe is perfect if you’re looking for something you can use for more than one meal or for meal prepping.

I ʟᴏᴠᴇ this recipe. I do it very often instead of rice. I use fresh cilantro and it works really well.

My family loves this dish. I used only fresh cilantro (couldn’t find dried) and added both chili lime spice and Tajin and it was a huge hit.
