Instant Pot Sushi Rice

There are few foods that have me doing the happy dance as much as sushi rolls. But let me tell you, it can be an expensive habit! So over the past year and a half, I’ve been learning and trying to perfect making it at home. And little did I know that the key is the rice! So when you combine this new mission with my slight obsession with my Instant Pot, you get this perfect Instant Pot sushi rice! I’m very happy about it.

And as Always… Please Pin & Share the Love!

    I didn’t think this rice recipe would taste good as I was mixing the white wine vinegar and rice vinegar because of the strong smell. I was pleasantly surprised after making and tasting the sushi I made with this rice. It was very good.
