Pressure Cooker Cilantro Lime Brown Rice: Make your own Chipotle inspired cilantro lime brown rice in just 4 easy steps! Gluten-free | Dairy-free | Low Oil | Instant Pot Recipe
Eat the Food You Love for Less
When I was pregnant with H, we ate So . Much . Chipotle. I had pretty intense
morning all-day sickness, and it was one of the few things that didn’t make me feel sick. It got to the point that my husband began to make homemade versions of what we were ordering to save money.
That’s my favorite thing about copycat recipes. You get to eat the food you love to order at restaurants for way less money.
Just 4 Simple Steps
I mentioned in my Instant Pot and Sweet Potato Stew post just how easy it is to cook rice in the Instant Pot, so I was eager to try this recipe using my Instant Pot. With just 4 simple steps, it’s seriously easy!
To make Pressure Cooker Cilantro Lime Brown Rice, just cook the rice, mix oil, lime and garlic, chop cilantro, and mix it all together! Yep, it’s really that easy.
Stove-Top & Rice Cooker Too
I prefer to make brown rice in my Instant Pot because it comes out perfectly every time, but if you don’t own a pressure cooker you can still make this recipe! Just follow the package instructions to cook two cups of rice on the stove top (or see this post for instructions), swapping broth for water. If using a rice cooker, follow your rice cooker’s recommendation.
- 2 cups brown rice
- 2½ cups vegetable broth (or sub water or chicken broth)
- 1 lime
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- ¼ cup chopped cilantro
- Place rice and broth in pressure cooker. Set manual time for 22 minutes.
- While rice is cooking, combine the juice of 1 lime, 1 tsp olive oil, and 1 tsp minced garlic in a small bowl, then chop cilantro.
- When rice is done, allow pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes.
- Mix all ingredients together and serve!
