Can you Cook Wild Rice in a Instant Pot?

Heck yea! Are you ready to cook up some of the best wild rice you've ever had? Well, I've got just the recipe for you – Instant Pot wild rice! It's easy to prepare, super flavorful, and totally fuss-free.

Here's How to Cook Wild Rice in a Instant Pot:

  1. Rinse your wild rice thoroughly under cold water. This will help to remove any dirt or debris that may be clinging to the grains.

  2. Add the wild rice to your Instant Pot, along with the appropriate amount of water or broth. If you're using water, the general rule of thumb is to use two cups of water for every one cup of wild rice, but you may want to adjust this ratio depending on your personal preference for the level of chewiness. If you're using broth, you can use a little less liquid (about 1.5 cups per cup of wild rice) to add extra flavor to your dish. If you're not sure how much water or broth to use, you can check out our wild rice to Wild Rice : Water Ratio Guide for assistance.

  3. Add any additional ingredients you'd like to include in your wild rice, such as diced onions, minced garlic, chopped carrots, sliced mushrooms, or diced bell peppers. You can also add a pinch of salt and a dash of pepper to taste, if you'd like.

  4. Close the lid on the Instant Pot and set it to the "manual" or "pressure cook" setting. Set the cooking time to 20 minutes.

  5. When the cooking time is up, allow the Instant Pot to release pressure naturally for about 10 minutes, then carefully release any remaining pressure using the valve on the lid.

  6. When the pressure has been fully released, carefully open the lid of the Instant Pot and fluff the wild rice with a fork. Serve the wild rice hot, and enjoy!

And there you have it – perfectly cooked Instant Pot wild rice that's ready to be enjoyed in just a few simple steps! Whether you're a seasoned wild rice pro or a newcomer to this nutritious and flavorful grain, I'm sure you'll love this easy and delicious recipe. So get ready to dig in, and savor every last bite!
