Instant Pot Wild Rice

Wild Rice is delicious but cooking it on the stove can take forever! Use your Instant Pot to cut down on your wild rice cook time. You’re going to love how easy this is!

--Water -- Olive oil -- Wild rice

Cooking wild rice on the stovetop can take up to an entire hour! This Instant Pot version means that your rice is done a little sooner.

The best thing about the Instant Pot is that I know that everything is going to come out perfectly every time. I don't have that success on the stovetop.

This recipe uses both a Quick Release and a Natural Release. When the rice is done cooking, don’t touch the pot for 10 min. After 10 minutes, open the pressure valve and enjoy your rice!

The ratio for the Instant Pot cooking is 1 cup of rice to 1 ¼ cup of water which is different from the stovetop instructions. .

Wild rice has a different way of showing you it is done than white or brown rice does. To know your Instant Pot Wild Rice is done cooking, check the grains. If most of them have “popped”, then your rice is done.

Overcooked wild rice will have almost all of the grains “popped” wide open. It will appear lighter in color and mushy. If you try it, it will be tasteless.

For an even more flavorful dish, you can cook your rice in chicken broth or beef broth instead of water. This will give a delicious umami flavor to your grain!
