Instant Pot Sushi Rice

Instant Pot Sushi Rice Recipe

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 recipe! I’m very happy about it.

Why Use the Instant Pot for This?

There’s a simple reason I prefer using the Instant Pot for rice: consistency! We actually got rid of our rice cooker once we discovered how perfectly the IP cooked rice each and every time. And any kitchen that can take away the guesswork gets my vote.

I Know… It Seems Like a Lot of Vinegar

I wasn’t surprised at how many comments we received about how much vinegar is called for in this recipe. I also wasn’t surprised at the response after people gave it a try! It may seem like a lot, but trust me on this… It creates an amazing flavor! And I think it’s some of the best sushi rice I’ve ever tasted. Try it!

The Process

Instant Pot Sushi Rice Recipe | The Foodie Eats

In a fine mesh strainer – Rinse rice under running water for about 2 minutes, Then let dry for a few minutes.

 

Instant Pot Sushi Rice Recipe | The Foodie Eats

Add rice and water to Instant Pot and use rice setting – low pressure for 12 minutes. Once cook time is complete, allow pressure to naturally release – about 10 minutes.

I’m very excited to bring this cauliflower stuffing to our next holiday meal. Especially since my sister-in-law has been eating plant-based for quite some time now. And since she won’t be eating the macaroni and cheese, at least she can enjoy some delicious stuffing. And believe me, this tastes every bit as good as a traditional one.

Vegan Green Bean Casserole

Vegan Green Bean Casserole

(And it’s Gluten-Free!)

One of the saddest things things I’ve ever experienced was seeing the look on my wife’s face last Thanksgiving when she realized she couldn’t eat the green bean casserole. So it was my mission to create a vegan green bean casserole that our whole family would enjoy, without it tasting like… well, vegan and gluten-free. The secret: was the homemade cream of mushroom soup that has no dairy or flour. It’s so, so good!

Mom’s Baked Macaroni and Cheese

(Which is Pretty Much a Casserole)

I’ve spent the last 10 years learning how to cook this dish the way my mom did when I was a kid. It was my first favorite food in the whole world (that I can remember). The only problem is… my mom does not measure anything! I mean, unless she’s baking a cake or a pie, it’s always just a little bit of this and that. Well, it is truly my pleasure to share this recipe with the world; especially after a few dozen failed attempts over the years. Please enjoy my mom’s famous baked macaroni and cheese!

Vegan Chickpea Curry with Spinach and Tomatoes

Vegan Chickpea Curry with Spinach and Tomatoes | The Foodie Eats

Vegan Chickpea Curry with Spinach and Tomatoes

My wife and I are in the process of switching to a more plant-based diet (personally, so far, I’ve done about 75/25). So now we will see what my chef skills are truly made of because I’m finding so many vegan/plant-based recipes that taste like… well… crap. That being said… We (with the exception of our 2-year-old daughter) could eat curry almost every day in our household. And this vegan chickpea curry is truly something special!

You Know the 1-Minute Quinoa Trick, Right?

By now, I hope you’ve all jumped on the bandwagon and purchased an Instant Pot. And here’s another reason why you should, if you haven’t already. Not only does adding quinoa to any meal dramatically increase the protein and fiber content, but (admittedly once you’re used to it) it offers a rich and nutty taste that, in my opinion, pairs especially well with curry. More often than not, when making a curry dish, I will forego the brown rice in lieu of quinoa. Plus… it takes a fraction of the time to cook. That’s a win, if nothing else.

Oh, I Almost Forgot to Tell You the Trick

Here are the measurements: 1 part quinoa. 1.5 parts liquid. 1 teaspoon salted seasoning (ie. salt, garlic salt, seasoned salt) . 1 bay leaf.

Here are the times: 1 minute of high pressure cook time. 10 minutes of natural-release pressure. Quick-release remaining pressure, remove lid, and turn off pressure cooker “keep warm” setting or it may overcook and become mushy.

Quick Quinoa Fried Rice

Quick Quinoa Fried Rice: A quick, nutritious weeknight meal. Easy | Gluten-Free | Dairy-Free | Vegetarian

Quinoa Fried Rice – A Quick, Nutritious, Meal

I’m a firm believer that everyone needs a collection of easy meals for busy nights. Sure, you can turn to take-out on hectic nights, but it’s cheaper and often healthier to make your own meal. This Quick Quinoa Fried Rice is healthy, inexpensive, and perfect for a quick weeknight meal. It’s also gluten-free, dairy-free and vegetarian!

Quick Quinoa Fried Rice: A quick, nutritious weeknight meal. Easy | Gluten-Free | Dairy-Free | Vegetarian

Why Quinoa Instead of Rice?

Believe me, I love fried rice as much as the next person. And, yes, you can follow this recipe, subbing rice for the quinoa, and still end up with a delicious meal. However, when I have a choice between quinoa and brown rice, quinoa wins out. You can see a comparison of brown rice and quinoa here.

There’s also a fool-proof method of cooking perfect quinoa each and every time using an Instant Pot. Simply add 1 part quinoa, 1.5 parts water (or stock), and cook on high pressure for 1 minute. Then let pressure naturally release for at least 10 minutes. Perfect, fluffy quinoa has never been so easy.

A Note on Onions

Due to my wife’s food intolerances (onions, gluten and dairy – it keeps me on my toes), we often remove onions and use garlic instead – when it works. Below, I’m sharing our family recipe for Quinoa Fried “Rice”, onion-free. Though this dish is delicious without onion,  you can easily scale back on the garlic and add some minced onion (or green onions) instead.

Pressure Cooker Baked Beans – Southern Style

Pressure Cooker Baked Beans | The Foodie Eats

Pressure Cooker Baked Beans

This southern-style pressure cooker baked beans recipe is incredibly simple to make and full of rich, sweet, and savory flavors. And it’s perfect for all your summer BBQ’s and picnics.

Cooked from Scratch

My wife is a huge proponent of cooking from scratch for two reasons: 1. It’s typically cheaper than purchasing pre-made food. 2. You have total control of the ingredient list and can minimize artificial additives.

However, there’s one draw back to cooking from scratch: It’s time consuming. Unless, of course, you own one of these:

Because this recipe is made in a pressure cooker, the hands-on time is relatively low. After quickly sautéing the bacon, onions and green pepper, add the rest of the ingredients, lock the lid, close the pressure valve, set the manual time for 60 minutes and walk away! No waiting hours for the beans to simmer on the stove top. And the result is a pot of delicious southern pressure cooker baked beans from scratch!

Pressure Cooker Baked Beans | The Foodie Eats

The Truth About Salt & Beans

Do you know why you wait to add salt until your beans are fully cooked? Most people, like myself for a long time, think it’s because it helps the beans cook more quickly. This seems true, but is actually an illusion. The real reason to wait is this… Salt makes the skin of the beans tough, which is why they then take longer to cook. So this is probably the only time I will ever recommend you wait until the end to season your food. Only with beans!

What would you serve with this dish?

We’ve had a few people tell us that they’ve simply added chicken to this risotto and they loved it! I, on the other hand, would recommend eating this dish with a nice piece of broiled fish. Lemon and fish are best friends, so this is a no-brainer for me.

Pressure Cooker Risotto

With Spring Peas and Mint

I am pleasantly surprised at how much I’m loving pressure cooker risotto. Gone are the days of ‘keep it moving’ and “one ladle at a time.’ Every time I cook risotto in my Instant Pot, it is perfect. So unless you need to be “authentic” in your preparation, I highly recommend giving it a try.

The Tools

I’ve been putting off getting a mortar and pestle for years. But what a great tool for making pastes and grinding fresh spices! I can foresee myself finding as many excuses to use it as possible. It really does help take your ingredients to the next level of amazing.
