How To Cook Wild Rice In The Instant Pot
I love wild rice. It’s a local food for me because I live in its native region.
I love that it’s high in protein, allergy-friendly, gluten-free, has has 30 times more antioxidants than white rice.
Yet, it has one major downfall….
It takes for.e.ver to cook. 😉
The first time I cooked wild rice, it took over an hour.
Although I’m unfortunately part of the “Microwave Generation”, my family and I don’t even own a microwave, so I’m really not whining here.
That’s just a big jump from 20 minutes of cooking white rice — which we eat about once a week.
I’ve cut my cooking time almost by half by switching to my Instant Pot! Here’s how to cook wild rice in the Instant Pot!
