Instant Pot Black Rice

Black rice is a real superfood: it is not only packed with beneficial substances like anti-oxidants, phytonutrients and fibers, but it also prevents such diseases like diabetes and atherosclerosis. Moreover, it is really tasty and aromatic so that it can be used in several recipes as an ingredient or even alone, as a side dish.

Its nutty flavor makes it suitable for both sweet and savory dishes and it pairs really well with fresh and seasonal veggies for a super healthy meal!
