  • 2 cups rice (basmati, jasmine, arborio, etc)
  • 3 cups water or bone broth
  • 2 teaspoons salt (I like my rice to be a bit salty, but you can always reduce this amount)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Place rice in the basic of an instant pot. Pour water on top along with salt and garlic powder, and mix to combined.
  2. Secure lid and press the rice function on the instant pot. This function should automatically set it to 12 minutes at low pressure. If your instant pot doesn’t have a rice function, you can press low pressure and set the time to 12 minutes. Once the instant pot comes to pressure (normally takes about 10 minutes with this much rice) then finishes cooking, let the pressure naturally release for 15 minutes before releasing any extra pressure, if needed.
  3. Now fluff the rice up and enjoy your life!
