Ingredients

4 cups long grain or basmati rice, brown or white (use the cup that comes with the Instant Pot)
4 cups water (same cup)
1 small carrot shredded
1 half of small zucchini shredded
1 small onion diced
1 small shallot diced
3 T minced garlic
1/4 red bell pepper diced small
1 tsp poultry seasoning
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
1 T salt
1/4 tsp turmeric
Dash pepper

Directions

Place instant pot on sauté and sauté onion and shallot for 2 minutes (keeping a splash of water near by in case it starts to stick), add garlic and sauté 1 more minute, add rinsed rice, water, nutritional yeast, poultry seasoning, turmeric, salt and pepper, give a good stir and put the Instant Pot on “Rice” , secure lid and point the steam button to sealing.

Once time is up release the pressure and fluff rice with fork. If not eating right away and this is say a “batch” cook, place the rice in a large casserole dish to cool in fridge. Garnish with green onion, parsley or chives.

What People Are Saying

“I am a touring recording artist and also a Vegan which can sometimes mean rice and veggies more than I want on the road.

I was in Columbus for a couple of days performing and a friend hooked me up with Rita (NuYu Nourish). She pre cooked 3 meals a day for me for the days I was in town and everything was absolutely delicious and healthy and SO convenient to have on the go!

I highly recommend her for any personal chef or catering needs you may have! She ROCKS!”

She is extremely talented and passionate about her cooking as well as helping people achieve their health goals through nutritious, delicious and cruelty-free meals.
