Instant Pot Mushroom Wild Rice

This creamy Instant Pot Mushroom Wild Rice can be made with very little effort in your Instant Pot. You can enjoy it as a simple side dish, or like me, as a main course with some toasty french bread on the side. =)

To make this Instant Pot Mushroom Wild Rice, first set your Instant Pot to the Sauté function. Add oil (or vegetable broth) and garlic to the pot. Cook for 1-2 minutes and then add the onion and mushrooms. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring, until the onions are translucent and soft. Then turn the Instant Pot off.

Next add the water, rice, Spanish paprika, black pepper, salt, and thyme to the pot. Set to cook on Manual for 22 minutes. *Make sure the Instant Pot is set to “Sealing”.

Meanwhile, as the Instant Pot cooks- in a high powdered blender, add the raw cashews and nutritional yeast. Process for 10-20 seconds until fine (powder-like consistency).

Once the Instant Pot is done cooking, release the pressure naturally (about 10-15 minutes). Open the lid, add the cashew mix and almond milk and stir well. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Keep this dish in an airtight container in the fridge for up 5-6 days. Makes roughly 6 (1-cup) servings.
