Pressure Cooker Yellow Rice Easily Made from Scratch

Pressure Cooker Yellow Rice | The Foodie Eats

Quick, Easy, and Delicious

Pressure Cooker Yellow Rice

This past weekend, my sister asked if I could bring yellow rice to family dinner at my mom’s house. I’m sure pressure cooker yellow rice was not on her radar. But it was actually the most complimented dish of the day. Everyone kept asking… “What’s that I’m tasting?” Ah! Music to a chef’s ears. Well, I told them. And now I’m telling you.

 

Why Yellow Rice From Scratch?

(Why not just use the bagged stuff?)

Wondering why you should try the from scratch method instead of using prepackaged bags of yellow rice? First, while making prepackaged rice that includes a seasoning packet is tempting because there’s no need to measure out spices, the amount of sodium in said packet needs a second look. Just 2 ounces of dry pre-packaged yellow rice typically has over 30% of your daily recommended sodium intake. One popular prepackaged brand had 750mg, compared to less than 200mg in this recipe. With homemade, you can control the sodium level and be assured that you’re cooking with real, not artificial, ingredients.

Second, with an Instant Pot, making your own yellow rice from scratch couldn’t be easier. Third, the flavor in this rice is amazing! Even my family, who like to stick to the same familiar dishes, loved the new flavors in this rice. We’ve yet to serve this rice to a crowd who didn’t devour it.

Spaghetti Squash Mac and Cheese in the Instant Pot

Spaghetti Squash Mac and Cheese | The Foodie Eats

Instant Pot Spaghetti Squash Mac and Cheese

Life’s all about balance, right? Give a little of this, take a little of that. Same principle applies to food. This Instant Pot Spaghetti Squash Mac and Cheese is a gluten-free adaptation of my mom’s famous mac and cheese, with a small fraction of the carbs! That’s a win!

Just a note: Spaghetti squash has a high water content, so the finished product will not be as dry as traditional baked mac and cheese. We served ours with a slotted spoon, which helped to reduce the moisture in each serving. While the texture is different than traditional mac and cheese, we were pleased with how much of the mac and cheese flavor this Instant Pot spaghetti squash mac and cheese had.

Cabbage is one of those foods that people eat all over the world. I believe it’s literally part of every single cuisine on planet Earth. But there’s one thing I really dislike…. sad, mushy, bland cabbage! Well, I am from the south, so that’s the lens I see food through. This Instant Pot cabbage takes all the guesswork out of getting the texture just right! And the flavor is undeniably southern in the best way.

Instant Pot Farro Risotto with Parmesan Cheese

Instant Pot Farro Risotto with Parmesan Cheese | The Foodie Eats

Instant Pot Farro Risotto with Parmesan Cheese

I love being creative with food and trying new things. Before early last year, I had never tried (or even heard of) farro. Well, more than likely, I had heard of it but just ignored it because I had no idea what is was… a grain. It’s similar to rice is size, but with a much heartier texture. So, since it was like rice, the idea was to try it in risotto! This Instant Pot farro risotto is the result.

 

While this recipe is called risotto, the final product will be significantly different than traditional risotto. Both the cooking style and flavors are the same, but using a totally different grain which will create a completely different texture and broth. Rice causes a much more starchy/creamy consistency, while farro “risotto” will be more on the brothy side.

 

Instant Pot Farro Risotto with Parmesan Cheese | The Foodie Eats

 

The Process

Instant Pot Farro Risotto with Parmesan Cheese | The Foodie Eats

Using sauté setting… melt butter.

Add onions and cook until soft and translucent (about 3 minutes), stirring frequently.

Next, add garlic and cook for another 30 seconds.

Then add farro to pot…

…and stir well, making sure to coat each grain with the butter. Cook for about one minute to toast, stirring frequently.

Add wine and give a good mix.

 

Instant Pot Farro Risotto with Parmesan Cheese | The Foodie Eats

Cook until nearly all the wine has been absorbed into farro (about 4 minutes), stirring almost constantly.

 

Instant Pot Farro Risotto with Parmesan Cheese | The Foodie Eats

Finally, add chicken broth and salt and mix well. Lock lid and cook for 10 minutes at high pressure.

Once cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally for at least 10 minutes. Then quick-release remaining pressure.

Instant Pot Cilantro Lime Rice

A few years ago, when my wife was pregnant with our second child, we ate too much Chipotle. She had the worst food aversion possible and it was the only thing that sounded good. So much so that it went from being my favorite fast food place to not wanting to eat it for a year. That’s no exaggeration, we went more than a year without even thinking about it. During that stretch, I began making it at home pretty regularly because I just couldn’t afford it any more! Well, this Instant Pot cilantro lime rice is my very own Chipotle Copycat cilantro lime rice. And it’s pretty doggone good!

Instant Pot Bread Pudding - Savory with Mushrooms and Parmesan | The Foodie Eats

Instant Pot Bread Pudding

Savory with Mushrooms and Parmesan

The first time I told my family I was making a savory bread pudding, they looked at me like I had two heads. They just couldn’t wrap their brains around the idea. But I tell you what… they sure did eat ALL of it! The best way I can describe this Instant Pot bread pudding is this… It’s like stuffing and bread pudding had a baby. All the flavors of holiday stuffing, but with the texture of traditional bread pudding – rich and custardy-creamy.

  3. Meanwhile… add eggs to a separate mixing bowl and whisk together. Then add heavy cream, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and pepper and whisk again. 

  4. Return toasted bread to same bowl you used to toss them. Add sautéed veggies and parsley. Mix well. Pour custard into bowl with bread and veggies. Mix well.

  5. Add 1 1/2 cups water to pot, along with 3-inch trivet. Turn on sauté setting to begin heating water. 

  6. Spray 7-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray. Pour stuffing into prepared pan. Top with parmesan cheese. Cover pan with foil and place on top of trivet. Lock lid and cook for 50 minutes at high pressure. Once cook time is complete, quick-release pressure.

  7. Remove lid from pot and foil from pan. If you like, although not a must, place pan under high broiler for a few minutes to toast the cheese. Serve warm.

I don’t know about you, but I had never eaten spaghetti squash until about 5 years ago. Just another thing that we didn’t eat in our household. But during a season of eating vegetarian, my wife and I discovered how versatile (and easy) spaghetti squash is to make. Well, this Greek-style Instant Pot spaghetti squash is pretty remarkable in that its flavor is amazing and it’s almost impossible to mess up!

Instant Pot Corn – Cilantro-Lime Creamed Corn

Instant Pot Corn - Cilantro-Lime Creamed Corn | The Foodie Eats

Instant Pot Corn

Cilantro-Lime Creamed Corn

I have been eating creamed corn my whole life. As a kid, it was definitely one of my top five favorite foods. Funny things is… when anybody in my family ever cooked it, they NEVER actually added cream. Or even milk for that matter! Which is crazy because almost every recipe online uses some sort of cream – heavy cream, milk, or even cream cheese. Well, I guess call me the odd ball because we’re only using butter for this Instant Pot corn.

Now, I did not grow up eating creamed corn with cilantro or lime. I’m from a small town in Florida and, back in the 80’s, I doubt we even knew what cilantro was. So this Instant Pot corn recipe is an adaption of my childhood, combined with my love of the cilantro and lime flavor profile. It’s pretty doggone good.

 

Instant Pot Corn - Cilantro-Lime Creamed Corn | The Foodie Eats

 

The Process

Instant Pot Corn - Cilantro-Lime Creamed Corn | The Foodie Eats

Cut corn kernels off of 6 cobs – should yield between 4-5 cups.

 

Instant Pot Corn - Cilantro-Lime Creamed Corn | The Foodie Eats

Break up corn into individual kernels.

Add corn to pot.

Then add water and salt. Lock lid and cook for 4 minutes at high pressure.

 

Instant Pot Corn - Cilantro-Lime Creamed Corn | The Foodie Eats

Meanwhile – finely chop cilantro.

 

Instant Pot Corn - Cilantro-Lime Creamed Corn | The Foodie Eats

Using a microplane – remove zest from 2 limes, then finely chop.

 

Instant Pot Corn - Cilantro-Lime Creamed Corn | The Foodie Eats

Once cook time is complete, quick-release pressure and remove lid. Switch to sauté setting.

 

Instant Pot Corn - Cilantro-Lime Creamed Corn | The Foodie Eats

Add butter, cilantro, lime zest, and cayenne. Mix well until butter is completely melted.

Make a cornstarch slurry.

Instant Pot Stuffing AKA Cornbread Dressing

Instant Pot Stuffing AKA Cornbread Dressing | The Foodie Eats

Instant Pot Stuffing

AKA Cornbread Dressing

Growing up, my mom’s macaroni and cheese was my favorite food in the whole world. But as I became an adult, it shifted to her cornbread dressing. It took me about 6 attempts to finally nail down a recipe (since she never measures anything), but I mastered it last year. Now, I’ve converted it into this Instant Pot Stuffing recipe! But it sounds weird calling it stuffing because in the south we call it dressing. Same thing though!

Instant Pot Stuffing AKA Cornbread Dressing | The Foodie Eats

 

The Process

(While making you own turkey stock is optional, I highly recommend it!)

Instant Pot Stuffing AKA Cornbread Dressing | The Foodie Eats

Add 4 turkey thighs to pot and season with 1 tablespoon of salt and teaspoon of black pepper.

 

Instant Pot Stuffing AKA Cornbread Dressing | The Foodie Eats

Cover turkey with 8 cups of water. Cook at high pressure for 30 minutes, then allow pressure to release naturally.

 

Instant Pot Stuffing AKA Cornbread Dressing | The Foodie Eats

Remove turkey and set aside. Pour broth through a fine mesh strainer to remove impurities. Use broth in all your favorite holiday recipes to take them to the next level.

 

Instant Pot Stuffing AKA Cornbread Dressing | The Foodie Eats

Using the sauté setting – add 2 tablespoons of oil to pot.

 

Instant Pot Stuffing AKA Cornbread Dressing | The Foodie Eats

Then add onions, celery, bell peppers, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Cook for about 5 minutes, until veggies are soft and translucent. This is your only chance to cook them, so make sure the soften. We don’t want crunchy celery.

 

Instant Pot Stuffing AKA Cornbread Dressing | The Foodie Eats

Meanwhile, remove the meat from 2 turkey thighs. Should be a total of about 1 1/2 cups.

 

Instant Pot Stuffing AKA Cornbread Dressing | The Foodie Eats

Chop turkey into small bean-sized pieces. Set aside.

 

Instant Pot Stuffing AKA Cornbread Dressing | The Foodie Eats

Turn off sauté setting. Add peas to pot, followed by…

 

Instant Pot Stuffing AKA Cornbread Dressing | The Foodie Eats

…turkey…

…cornbread…

…stuffing mix…

sage, poultry seasoning…

 

Instant Pot Stuffing AKA Cornbread Dressing | The Foodie Eats

…and turkey stock.

 

Instant Pot Stuffing AKA Cornbread Dressing | The Foodie Eats

Mix all ingredients together REALLY well.

 

Instant Pot Stuffing AKA Cornbread Dressing | The Foodie Eats

Spray a 7-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray.

 

Instant Pot Stuffing AKA Cornbread Dressing | The Foodie Eats

Pour all ingredients into pan, spread out evenly, and pack down firmly.

 

Instant Pot Stuffing AKA Cornbread Dressing | The Foodie Eats

Cover with aluminum foil.

 

Instant Pot Stuffing AKA Cornbread Dressing | The Foodie Eats

Pour 1 cup of turkey stock into pot (do not rinse out first!), then add a 3-inch trivet.

 

Instant Pot Stuffing AKA Cornbread Dressing | The Foodie Eats

Place pan on top of trivet, lock lid, and cook at high pressure for 30 minutes. Once cook time is complete, quick release pressure. Remove pan from pot, take off foil covering, and place in oven under high broiler for about 5 minutes to crisp the top.

Instant Pot Cornbread Made from Scratch

Instant Pot Cornbread | The Foodie Eats

Instant Pot Cornbread Made from Scratch

I don’t know where you live, but it’s been incredibly hot in Florida this summer. And for that reason, the oven has not been used in several weeks. So I’ve been on a mission to create recipes for some of my favorite foods without heating up the whole kitchen… And this Instant Pot Cornbread is a result of that!

Sweet or Non-Sweet Cornbread?

I don’t believe that cornbread should be sweet. Nothing against anyone who chooses that, it’s just not the way I grew up eating it. However, I find that adding just a little bit of sugar points to the actual corn flavor and makes it taste more like cornbread… If that makes any sense at all.

 

Instant Pot Cornbread | The Foodie Eats

 

The Process

Instant Pot Cornbread | The Foodie Eats

Add all dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl – cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt.

 

Instant Pot Cornbread | The Foodie Eats

Whisk them together.

 

Instant Pot Cornbread | The Foodie Eats

In a separate mixing bowl – add melted butter and sugar.

 

Instant Pot Cornbread | The Foodie Eats

Whisk together until sugar has melted.

 

Instant Pot Cornbread | The Foodie Eats

Add eggs to butter mixture…

 

Instant Pot Cornbread | The Foodie Eats

… and whisk until fully combined.

 

Instant Pot Cornbread | The Foodie Eats

Add buttermilk…

 

Instant Pot Cornbread | The Foodie Eats

…and whisk again.

 

Instant Pot Cornbread | The Foodie Eats

Pour wet ingredients into bowl with dry ingredients.

 

Instant Pot Cornbread | The Foodie Eats

Stir together until fully combined. A few lumps may remain, and that’s okay.

 

Instant Pot Cornbread | The Foodie Eats

Spray a 7×3 push pan with nonstick cooking spray.

 

Instant Pot Cornbread | The Foodie Eats

Pour batter into pan and spread out evenly.

 

Instant Pot Cornbread | The Foodie Eats

Cover pan with aluminum foil.

 

Instant Pot Cornbread | The Foodie Eats

Place 3-inch trivet in cooker, along with 1 1/2 cups of water.

 

Instant Pot Cornbread | The Foodie Eats

Place pan on top of trivet. Lock lid and cook for 35 minutes at high pressure. Once cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes. Then quick-release remaining pressure. Remove pan from cooker, uncover, and allow to cool for 1 or 2 minutes before slicing.
