Cilantro Lime Brown Rice {Electric Pressure Cooker Recipe}

We love Mexican food. And I'm always on the lookout for a good Mexican dish that is healthy. So many Mexican recipes use white rice or a lot of meat, both of which we try to use in moderation. Here's a delicious side-dish recipe that we love that uses brown rice. Brown rice is better for you than white rice because it contains the outer hull, making it a whole grain with lots of fiber and nutrition. Cooking brown rice in the pressure cooker is so amazing - it comes out light and fluffy and soft in about half the time it takes to cook on the stove. It really is the best way to do it. We love to serve this as a topping on this yummy Mexican black bean salad

Printable Recipe

*Serves 3-4

1 Cup Long Grain Brown Rice
1-2/3 Cups Chicken Broth
1 tsp. butter
1/2 tsp. garlic, minced
1 Tbsp + 1 tsp. fresh lime juice, divided
1-1/2 tsp. white sugar
3 Tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped finely

In an electric pressure cooker combine the long grain brown rice, chicken broth, butter, garlic and 1 tsp. fresh lime juice and mix until combined. Bring to high pressure and cook for 21 minutes. Naturally release the pressure. While rice is cooking, mix in a small bowl 1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice, white sugar and finely chopped cilantro. When rice is done cooking, fluff with a fork and mix in the lime/sugar/cilantro mixture. Serve immediately or keep on warm setting until ready to serve.

Question...is the time for your recipes the same for regular pressure cookers?

Great question. It should be pretty close on this one. Sometimes it varies slightly by a minute or two. Go ahead and try it and let me know!
