Rice comes out so well in the Instant Pot. Here's how I make Brown Basmati Rice
  • Ingredients:
  • 1 cup brown basmati rice
  • 1¼ water
  • 1 tablespoon buttery spread or plant based butter spread
  • Optional: Spray the Instant Pot with a olive oil spray or put a little olive oil on the bottom to prevent sticking
  1. Add all the ingredients in the Instant Pot
  2. Put on top and set valve to sealing, not venting
  3. Let the rice cook for 22 minutes
  4. After the time is up, do QR (quick release) - which is turning the know to venting and let the steam come out. Use a silicone mitt to turn the vent so you don't burn yourself.
  5. Serve
  6. Note, when I made this, the rice was much drier and a little stuck to the bottom of the pot. If you spray a non-aerosol spray, it will help (or add a little more water).
