What are some other vegetables that you could add to this instant pot rice recipe?
This is just another great benefit of this simple Instant Pot recipe. You can up the veggies, if you want! Add in some diced carrots for a little kick of sweetness or even some diced tomatoes on top of the bowl once you have it served and ready to eat. I also like to top it with some fresh cilantro sometimes, too!
