Whole Grain Rice In Your Instant Pot!

Once you’ve learned to make whole grain rice, you’ll never touch white rice again. Sure, it takes a bit longer to cook but the nutty flavor and high antioxidants make it so worthwhile! Whole grain rice is simple to prepare and even easier in the Instant Pot. Just remember that water doesn’t cook off in the Instant Pot, so add only what you need. It is pretty much a 1:1 ratio, once you’ve rinsed your rice. This recipe calls for red rice, but brown rice cooks exactly the same.
