  1. Rinse the quinoa under cold water to remove any bitterness.
  2. Place the quinoa and water in the pressure cooker according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  3. Add a pinch of baking powder to the quinoa and water to help it cook evenly and become fluffier.
  4. Cook the quinoa in the pressure cooker for the recommended time.
  5. While the quinoa is cooking, prepare the kale by removing the tough stems and chopping the leaves into bite-sized pieces.
  6. After the quinoa is done, release the pressure and fluff it with a fork.
  7. In a separate pot, blanch the kale in boiling water for a few minutes until it's tender but still vibrant green.
  8. Drain the kale and immediately transfer it to an ice bath to stop the cooking process.
  9. Once the kale is cooled, gently squeeze out any excess water.
  10. In a large bowl, mix the cooked quinoa and blanched kale together.
  11. Drizzle with your favorite keto-friendly dressing or a simple olive oil and lemon juice combination.
  12. Toss everything together until well combined.
  13. Serve the pressure cooker quinoa and kale salad as a delicious and nutritious keto-friendly side dish.
