If you have ever wanted to make wild rice, but don't want to spend time figuring out exactly how to do it on the stovetop, I have the easiest way! Perfect every time, this Instant Pot wild rice is hands-off, eyes off, and cooks for only 15 minutes. Soft, chewy, and nutty you are sure to love this wild rice recipe.



2 cups wild rice blend

3 cups of water or broth (I would use vegetable broth)

1 tsp salt

1 tsp garlic powder


  1. Combine: Combine all ingredients (rice, water, salt, and garlic powder) in the Instant Pot and stir.
  2. Seal: Seal the Instant Pot by closing the lid and pushing the toggle on top toward the back "sealing".
  3. Set: Set the Instant Pot to the manual setting and adjust the time to 15 minutes using the +- controls.
  4. Release Pressure: Allow the Instant Pot to naturally release its pressure. This means you don't touch the lid or toggle and wait until the pressure is released (the red float valve will go down).
  5. Fluff: Fluff the rice with a fork.
