Instant Pot Brown Rice & Veggies Recipe Ingredients:


  • Peel and thinly dice your red onion and load it into the instant pot pressure cooker. Click sauté and add a little extra virgin olive oil. As it heats up peel and thinly dice your carrot and deseed and slice your peppers.
  • Sauté your onion for 2-3 minutes or until the onion starts to change colour. Cancel sauté. Add in the vegetables, seasoning and stock.
  • Rinse your brown rice, load into the instant pot and stir.
  • Place the lid on the instant pot, set the valve to sealing and cook for 18 minutes on manual pressure cook.
  • Complete 5 minutes of natural pressure release before releasing the rest of the pressure.
  • Fluff up the vegetable rice with a fork and serve.


You can use any vegetable that doesn’t have a mushy texture when overcooked. The easiest option is frozen sweetcorn and frozen peas, but you can mix and match.
I used mixed peppers and any bits and pieces you have of coloured peppers is fine. Its also okay if you used just green or just red.
I recommend this brand for healthy bone broth and soup based stocks to use in the instant pot. They are much healthier, but best of all they make your food taste so much better and give a much better pressure cooker flavour.
