A simple Instant Pot recipe for your wild rice!  Such an easy side dish and the cooking time is SO much shorter in an Instant Pot!



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


  1. Rinse rice under 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!


  • 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.
