  • 2 cups Veggie Broth
  • 2 cups Jasmine Rice
  • 1 Bok Choy (chopped)
  • 1 small Sweet Onion (chopped)
  • 1 cup Mushrooms (chopped)
  • 1 cup shredded Carrots (chopped)
  • 1 cup frozen Peas (thawed)
  • 1 cup frozen Organic Corn (thawed)
  • 2 tbsp. Braggs
  • 1 tsp. frozen Garlic

  1. Bring Broth to a slight boil using a microwave
  2. Combine all ingredients in the IP
  3. Lock lid in place and make sure pressure release valve is closed
  4. Press "Manual" button and adjust cooking time to 3 minutes at high pressure
  5. When done, use quick release method

Directions (Skillet):
    1. Cook Rice according to package, increasing Broth to 3 cups
    2. Saute Onions until brown in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat
    3. Stir in Garlic & Ginger for 30 seconds
    4. Add Bok Choy, Carrots, Mushrooms, Peas & Corn
    5. Stir in Rice & Braggs

    Hoff Thoughts: I bring the Broth to a boil in order to speed up the Instant Pot in coming to pressure.  Because even though it cooks fast, I'm still impatient.  Thaw the Peas & Corn by placing in a wire sieve and running cold water over them.  Find frozen spice cubes in the freezer section likely near the vegetables.
