Want a delicious and easy side dish for dinner? How about making some Instant Pot fried rice. Your family will love the savory, umami, garlicky flavors! Mine does. :)
Instant Pot Vegetable Fried Rice RecipeIngredients:
- 2 cups white rice
- 2 ½ cups chicken broth
- 1-2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 green onion stems, sliced thin
- 2 carrots, peeled and chopped
- ½ teaspoon minced garlic
- 3 eggs, whisked
- 1-2 teaspoons olive oil
- ½ teaspoon salt
Rinse two cups of rice in a colander until water runs clear. Put rice in pot and add 2 ½ cups chicken broth, along with 1-2 tablespoons soy sauce. Mix to make sure rice is evenly distributed in pot.
I like the carrots to be soft so I added them to the rice to be cooked. You can choose to leave them out and sauté them with the green onions, garlic, and peas. Use the rice setting on the Instant Pot.
First time users, here is a tip! When using the already programmed settings, the timer will say “auto” while it is heating. Make sure when using the pressure settings you move the steam release handle to sealing.
Once the rice has cooked, release the handle to vent an wait until all the air is released before you open the lid. Fluff the rice and push to one side of the pot. Turn the Instant Pot onto thesauté setting and add 1-2 teaspoons olive oil.
Add the garlic, green onions and peas to the pot tosauté for 2 minutes. Fold the ingredients into the rice. Pour the 3 beaten eggs over the rice and let cook for a minute or two.
As the eggs cook, fold them into the rice and turn the heat off. Enjoy!
This is a perfect dish to accompany any sort of chicken or beef main. I personally couldn't stop eating it! For more tasty recipes, check out all our party food recipes on Catch My Party.
