  • 1 cup water or chicken broth
  • 1 cup rice of choice (can use basmati, jasmine, white, brown or wild rice blend)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pinch salt


  • Add olive oil to the bottom of the pot, then add rice, salt and water or broth (choose broth for more flavour). Place lid on Instant Pot and make sure valve is set to seal.
  • Press the pressure cook button and set to high, then cook for the applicable times listed below. Instant Pot will take about 5-10 minutes to come to pressure then pressure cook for whatever time you have set it for.
  • Allow the pressure to release naturally (about 15-20 minutes), then open the lid when pressure gauge has dropped and the lid opens easily. Fluff rice with a fork and immediately remove it from the pot to prevent overcooking.
  • Rice will last in the fridge up to 5 days, and cooked rice can be frozen up to 2 months.


  • Jasmine rice: 3 minutes.
  • Long grain white rice: 5 minutes.
  • White basmati rice: 5 minutes.
  • Long grain brown rice: 25 minutes.
  • Wild rice blend: 25 minutes.
