Pressure Cooked Mexican Brown Rice

Pressure Cooked Mexican Brown Rice

Woah wow it's been a long time since I have posted a recipe. I need to remedy that. Anyway whatever no big deal. I made some awesome rice. You should make some too. It's healthy, delicious, easy and very versatile. It goes in bowls, burritos, enchiladas, and whatever else you like. I cooked it in one of my favorite home appliances : my Instant Pot! It's no lie that it's about the handiest thing I have. Seriously I have never heard of anyone buying one and not loving it. 

Pressure Cooked Mexican Brown Rice

2 & 1/2 cup short grain brown rice
1 Tablespoon whole cumin seeds
14oz can chopped tomatoes
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2-1 jalapeno, minced (optional)
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups vegetable broth 
1 & 1/4 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons tomato paste
1 can corn (drained) - optional 
1/4 cup chopped cilantro



Turn your pressure cooker on to saute and cook the onions, cumin seed and jalapeno until the onions are translucent. Add everything else except the corn and cilantro then stir well. Put on the lid and cook at high pressure (that's the regular pressure rather than low) for 25 minutes with natural release for 10 (then manual release if necessary after that.) Stir in the corn and cilantro at the end.
