Instant Pot Wild Rice – a simple and easy side dish recipe to make wild rice in the Instant Pot.  And the cooking time is SO much shorter!


  • 1 1/2 cup chicken broth (or water)
  • 1 cup wild rice
  • pinch of kosher salt


  1. Rinse rice under cold water.
  2. Add rinsed rice, broth (or water) and pinch of salt to Instant Pot (you do not need to use the trivet).
  3. Stir to combine.
  4. Close Instant Pot and make sure it is set to Seal.
  5. Pressure cook on HIGH for 25 minutes.
  6. Allow to naturally release for 10 minutes then carefully manually release any remaining pressure.
  7. Stir rice.
  8. If there is a tiny amount of water at the bottom, that’s okay.  Stir your rice up a couple times and it will soak in/evaporate quickly!


  • Cooking time: resulting texture of this recipe is that the rice is fairly soft and a little chewy.  If you want your rice a little more chewy (less soft) reduce cooking time by 3 minutes (and reduce water by 2 tablespoons).  If you want your rice VERY soft increase cooking time by 2-3 minutes.
  • Storage: place cooked wild rice in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4-6 days.
