  • 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)
  • 1/3 cup Braggs
  • 2 tsp. frozen Garlic

Directions (Instant Pot):
  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 10 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.
