Pressure Cooked Mexican Brown Rice

July 13, 2015 July 13, 2015/ Morgan

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. 

2 & 1/2 cup short grain brown rice1 Tablespoon whole cumin seeds14oz can chopped tomatoes1/2 onion, chopped1/2-1 jalapeno, minced (optional)3 cloves garlic, minced3 cups vegetable broth 1 & 1/4 teaspoon salt2 Tablespoons tomato paste1 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.
