A friend sent me an Instant Pot in the mail a few months ago, with a note that read, "These are all the rage now." I hadn't heard of them until then, but now, all of a sudden, I've noticed that Instant Pot recipes are everywhere! With all the different options and settings, there's great room for creativity and, especially, for saving time. But it isn't just about casseroles, elaborate meals, or even desserts. Surprisingly, this handy kitchen device can be used to make basics — in about half the time and with a lot less cleanup — like hard-boiled eggs. And rice.

Here's a simple recipe for cooking rice in the Instant Pot. You can extrapolate it, adding oil, butter, chicken stock, or even some tomato paste and onions for a Spanish twist. Or you can just make a bunch of plain rice to have ready throughout the week and serve with other delicious meals you make.
