You may remember this yummy Instant Pot Poached Pears Recipe from the original “I Love My Instant Pot” Recipe Book.

Well, Michelle has done it again with the “I Love My Instant Pot” Gluten-Free Recipe Book which includes 175 gluten-free recipes that look absolutely amazing.

Why I Love the “I Love My Instant Pot” Gluten-Free Recipe Book

Personally, I am so pleased at how far gluten-free awareness has come. Over 20 years ago my son was born with multiple food allergies including wheat and gluten.

At that time, public awareness about food allergies was virtually nonexistent.

As a young mom and a new cook, it was really hard for me to find gluten-free recipes to feed my family.

The internet was not even a thing and there was no Instant Pot either. It was truly the dark ages. 😉

So, you see, the “I Love My Instant Pot” Gluten-Free Recipe Book really fills a need to help people live healthier lives.

Today, I am going to showcase the Instant Pot Gluten-Free Quinoa Tabbouleh recipe from Michelle’s book.

But first, let’s talk about the Instant Pot for a second.

What Is An Instant Pot?

The Instant Pot is an extremely useful small kitchen appliance. Actually, it is about 7 appliances all rolled into one.

This little powerhouse is a:

  • Pressure Cooker,
  • Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker,
  • Steamer,
  • Sauté,
  • Yogurt Marker and
  • Warmer.

It comes in a few different models and sizes, but the one that I am using for this Gluten-Free Quinoa Tabbouleh is the Instant Pot DUO60, which is a 6 quart model.

Gluten-Free Quinoa Tabbouleh Recipe for the Instant Pot

I love tabbouleh – it is a healthy and very flavorful salad that is works as a side dish or even a light meal.

Traditionally, tabbouleh is made with bulgur wheat which, of course, contains gluten.

However Michelle’s recipe in the “I Love My Instant Pot” Gluten-Free Recipe Book is made with quinoa instead. It is still packed with flavor and I think it is even more light and refreshing than the original.
