Can I Cook 2 Boxes of Rice A Roni In the Instant Pot
I have not tried doing this, but yes I think you would have no problem cooking two boxes if you have a 6 quart Instant Pot. You would leave the cooking time the same and just double the recipe as directed.
A lot of people think when you double a recipe in the Instant Pot you adjust ingredients but you will almost always leave the cooking time the same. I am sure there are some times you will add more time. But for rice, you can leave it the same and still get light and fluffy rice.
How Long Does It Take to Cook Rice A Roni In Instant Pot
You will take around two minutes to saute the rice in the butter just as you would in a pan. Then cook for 12 minutes. While it isn’t much faster than cooking on the stove you might find you enjoy the flavor of the rice more.
I find that cooking in the Instant Pot always allows for more flavor to be brought out. Since the food is under pressure it really helps bring out all the flavors of the spices and seasonings.
Give this recipe a try and let me know what you think! We are huge fans of rice and I will still on occasion reach for boxed rice to whip up to go with dinner.
