Using a stovetop pressure cooker
  1. Heat the pressure cooker pan to medium heat, add oil, onion, and mushrooms. Cook for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add quinoa, water, olives, and spinach. Secure the lid, set to high pressure, and put the heat up to high. Once the pressure cooker has reached high pressure (a knob will pop up), reduce heat to medium/low and cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Remove the pot from the heat, and let the pressure release naturally, about 10 minutes.
  4. Season with salt, pepper, and lemon juice to taste, and serve.
