  • Wild Rice: Use dry, uncooked wild rice. Use only pure wild rice with this method. Rice blends that include wild rice may cook at a different pressure level/time.
  • Olive Oil: This is to keep the rice from sticking to the bottom of the pot. It is purely precautionary and can be omitted if desired.
  • 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! Use the same amount of liquid and cook time as
  • I love wild rice best served with a pat of butter and some salt.
  • Make sure to rinse your rice before cooking!
  • Please note, this recipe will work in any pressure cooker. I also have a Zavor LUX Pressure Cooker, and it works in that brand as well
  • If your rice is not done when you open the lid, simply put the lid back on, seal, and cook for another 2-3 minutes, depending on desired texture.
