  • Dash of salt optional


  • Combine the ingredients in the insert of your Ninja Foodi or instant pot.
  • Place the cover on, and set to high pressure/manual for three minutes.
  • It will take about seven minutes to pressurize before the three minutes will start counting down.
  • Let it naturally release for 10 minutes.
  • Fluff the rice with a fork, and enjoy!


This easy recipe calls for water. To infuse your rice with more flavor, you can replace the water with vegetable or chicken broth.
You can also add a dash of salt for a little more flavor.
You can easily double or triple this recipe. However, you do not need to adjust the cooking times. I know, it sounds crazy, but don’t increase the cooking time, or your rice will not turn out well.
I used a six-quart pot. However, none of the steps should change if your pot is smaller or bigger than mine.
I do not suggest using Minute Rice for this recipe. I used long grain white rice, which cooks up beautifully.
