  • 1 1/2 cups jasmine rice
  • 14 oz. coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh mint finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh basil


  1. Rinse rice under cold water until water begins to run clear. Then transfer wet rice to pot.

  2. In a mixing bowl, combine coconut milk and vegetable broth. Pour liquid over rice, along with salt, and give a quick mix. Lock lid at cook for 4 minutes at high pressure.

  3. Meanwhile, take a few leaves of mint and basil and chop them as finely as you can.

  4. Once cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally for about 10 minutes, then quick-release any remaining pressure.

  5. Then, use a fork to fluff rice. Add herbs to rice and mix well.

Recipe Notes

This rice recipe will be both sticky and clumpy, not individual grains - perfect for serving with something with lots of liquid to soak it up.
