Just a few simple ingredients can create a flavorful and tasty dish. Directions for Instant Pot and stovetop preparation are included for this Instant Pot Ginger Jasmine Rice.
Jasmine rice is a great choice when you want to pair rice with many different cuisines. Carolina® Jasmine Rice is my absolute favorite, and it’s known for its delicate flavor and enticing aroma. Jasmine Rice has a soft texture and it’s slightly sticky. Perfect for Thai and Asian cuisines.
It’s great made as a main dish or as a side dish! Jasmine rice can also be served with fruit, or can be made into desserts.
Instant Pot Ginger Jasmine Rice
Carolina® Jasmine Rice is incredibly easy to make in the Instant Pot and it’s ready to eat in less than 20 minutes. I love making my famous Ginger Jasmine Rice. It is so easy, and only requires five ingredients:
- Carolina Jasmine Rice
- Chicken Broth
- Minced Garlic
- Ground Ginger
It only takes 4 minutes to cook under pressure in a pressure cooker with 10 minutes of natural release time. Using a pressure cooker really locks in the fragrant scent that Carolina Jasmine Rice naturally has and it comes out perfectly soft and sticky. It is much quicker than the stovetop but the stovetop yields just as delicious results!
Instant Pot vs. Stovetop Ginger Jasmine Rice
Cooking Carolina Jasmine Rice on the stovetop takes a little longer but the results are just as soft and sticky as making it in a pressure cooker.
The only thing that changes in the ingredients list is the amount of chicken broth that is added. The reason for this is because steam can escape when cooking on the stovetop and a pressure cooker traps all liquid and doesn’t allow any to escape.
All of the ingredients are added to the pot except for the cilantro and it’s cooked for 18 minutes on medium-low. Once the cooking time is up, the pot is removed from the heat and set aside with the lid on for 10 minutes.
Once the lid is removed, it’s fluffed with a fork and sprinkled with cilantro for serving.
You don’t need a bunch of ingredients to make delicious rice. Carolina Jasmine Rice naturally has a sweet and nutty flavor. It doesn’t take much to make this rice even more flavorful. This rice is made with ginger, garlic, and cilantro. The seasonings create a tasty blend of flavors that the family will love.
Chicken broth is used in this recipe, but vegetable broth can be substituted if you want to make it vegan. It’s an easy swap between the two and the ingredient amount stays the same.
