How to Make Rice Pilaf in the Instant Pot

I love my Instant Pot.  Everyday I'm finding new ways to make my favorite recipes a whole lot easier.  One such recipe is my rice pilaf. Not that rice pilaf in itself is difficult to make, but with the Instant Pot there is a lot less babysitting it.

Full of rich, savory flavor, rice pilaf is one of my all time favorite side dishes, and by making it in the Instant Pot I can set it, forget it, and focus on the other elements of my meal. I can't wait to share with you how I make it, so here you go!

Q:  Can I use anything other than orzo?
A:  Yes.  You can use broken spaghetti noodles or omit it all together and just use rice.  

Q:  Do I have to add celery?
A:  No, but in my opinion it will affect the flavor.  

Q:  Do I have to add garlic?
A:  No, but I would recommend using garlic powder.  

Q:  Do I have to add onion?
A:  No, but again I recommend adding onion powder.

Q:  Can this  be made vegan/vegetarian?
A:  YES!  Simply swap the chicken broth for vegetable broth.
