Instant Pot Pilaf Rice

You will like to read : How to cook with Instant Pot

Like me, you’ll love cooking Pilaf Rice in the Instant Pot. It’s simple to prepare and the rice can be kept warm while cooking the rest of the meal.

Do not be surprised to find that the recipe contains less broth than when it is baked; rice cooked under pressure requires less liquid and it’s normal.

I tested this recipe with converted white rice (Uncle Ben). When I do not have homemade broth I prefer to use commercial unsalted broth to avoid getting too salty food. You can still prepare it with salted broth by omitting the salt in the recipe.
