How To Make Instant Pot Wild Rice Mushroom Pilaf

STEP 1: Rinse the Rice and Mushrooms

Rinse the long and wild rice mix, until the water runs clear. Set aside until ready to use. I like to set the rice (still in the strainer) on top of a large plate to catch any water that continues to drain.

Rinse the mushrooms to clean them. You can wipe them clean with a cloth if you prefer.

It’s also an excellent side dish for salmon fillets, particularly spicy maple ginger salmon and garlic lemon butter salmon.

Storage Tips For Instant Pot Wild Rice Mushroom Pilaf

Store cooked Instant Pot wild rice mushroom pilaf in the refrigerator for up to four days. However, keep in mind that the texture of the rice will change, the longer it is kept.

Therefore, it’s best to enjoy the leftovers as soon as you can, within a day or two for optimal freshness.

If you’d like to freeze cooked mushroom rice pilaf, you can, for up to three months. Make sure to use a freezer safe Ziplock bag with the air pressed out or a tightly sealed freezer safe container.
