This quinoa dish is a take on a classic middle eastern dish, called Baghali Polo. This fragrant and fluffy rice dish pairs the pleasant flavors of dill, basmati rice, saffron and Fava beans. But here I have substituted the rice for quinoa and we’re going to make it in the rice cooker.
2 cups quinoa, rinsed & drained
2-14 ounce frozen bag double peeled Fava Beans
3 1/2 cups of boiling water
1/2 teaspoon ground dried saffron
3-4 tablespoons dried dill
1-Rinse your quinoa with cold water, set aside
2-Place the quinoa, frozen Fava beans and boiling water into the rice cooker. Mix everything
3-Add the saffron, dried dill and mix well. Close lid
4-Turn on rice cooker, hit the quinoa function.
5-Once it’s done cooking, open the lid, then fluff with a fork. Enjoy

Looks so good. We love dill. Can I do this in the instant pot? I don’t have a rice cooker.
