Instant Pot Brown Rice

An easy and quick to make side dish for the dinner table.

Brown rice, unlike white rice, is a rice that still contains its shell, rich in fiber and nutrients. Like all complete foods, Brown rice is recommended for its low glycemic load in the diet of people with diabetes but it should be recommended to everyone instead of white rice.

The difference with brown rice is that it takes a little longer to cook than white rice.

Should I rinse the rice before cooking?

Before cooking a good brown rice or any rice, it is recommended to rinse it to remove the starch (which makes the rice sticks) and all the impurities that may be on the grain of rice. Put the rice in a bowl and rinse it several times, rubbing it until the water is clear.

Please note that if you DO rinse the rice, decrease 1/4 cup of water from the 3 cups I’m using in the recipe.
