Instant Pot Rice Recipes – 20+ Easy Recipes for your Pressure Cooker!

20+ instant pot rice recipes

Before I became an Instant Pot user, rice was something I ate, but did not really like unless it was prepared for me at a Japanese restaurant or by my mother-in-law. I thought of it as a filler, a side dish to make sure that I stayed full until the next meal. I was constantly burning rice on the stove or just resorting to the microwave rice packets. But then, I got an Instant Pot, and my opinions about rice changed! I started with Instant Pot Mexican Rice and my love for the Instant Pot…and rice only grew! If you have been to my site before, it’s likely that the Instant Pot Mexican Rice is what brought you here. It’s my most popular recipe of all time! I have made some other Instant Pot rice recipes, and collected some others in the list below. Scroll down, check it out and let me know what you think!
