You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

Basmati Rice In Instant Pot
1 cup basmati rice
1 – 1 ¼ cup liquid, either water, chicken broth or vegetable broth
½ tsp salt
2 tsp. Olive oil
Fresh parsley, cilantro or basil chopped for garnish

Pour rice into the instant pot and add enough water to cover the rice. Swirl the water with your hand until the water looks milky. Pour the water out through a strainer and repeat another time.

On the last rinse, drain all the water out. Add the chicken broth or other liquid to the instant pot and add the oil and salt if desired. Stir.

Swirl the pan to make sure the rice is laying flat on the bottom of the pan and the water completely covers all of the rice.

put the pan in the instant pot, add the cover and make sure the vent is on seal. Set the timer to pressure cook for 6 minutes on high.

When the 6 minutes is up, allow the instant pot to do a natural release for 10 or 11 minutes. Be sure to then release all the pressure before opening the instant pot.

Add the fresh parsley and fluff the rice. Enjoy!
