Pressure Cooker Herb Rice is versatile and goes with many dishes. It’s a perfect side because it’s super easy and you can use any herbs and spices you want.

Pressure Cooker Herb Rice Recipe From Val's Kitchen

Rice. You can do so much with rice, it can be prepared so many ways and be served with so many different dishes. Many types of rice, especially white, are super economical so I keep some on hand at all times. We love it. What I don’t love about rice is standing over a stove stirring. I’m not having it. Many years back I bought an expensive fuzzy logic rice maker and made my rice in there. I retired it when I got my first electric pressure cooker because I started making my rice in that. I have never looked back. I will, at almost any cost, always look for a way to make something without turning on a stove and standing there stirring. I don’t have the time or patience for it.

Pressure Cooker Herb Rice is a perfect side because you can put whatever herbs and spices you want in there and in any amounts you want. It’s also perfect because it’s versatile and ridiculously easy to make. No standing, no stirring, no covering – it’s so easy it almost makes itself. And, it’s gluten-free if you check your labels! Here’s how I make Pressure Cooker Herb Rice.

Instructions

Plug in the electric pressure cooker.

Measure the rice and then rinse it out in the sink using a fine strainer.

While the rice is draining, pour the water (or broth) into the pressure cooker’s pot.

Add the seasonings to the water or broth and stir.

Add the rice into the pot and stir. Be sure that all of the rice is covered by liquid.

Set the pressure cooker to cook on manual high pressure for 4 minutes.

Once the cooking cycle has finished, let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes.

Move the rice to a bowl and then add butter, salt and pepper as desired.

Serve immediately or let cool a little and store for later use.

Enjoy!

I actually have a pressure cooker that I’ve never used. Perhaps it is time to dig it out. I love flavoured rice and it looks like the pressure cooker makes it perfectly.
