  • Author: Food with Feeling
  • Total Time: 18 minutes
  • Yield: 3 cups of rice 1x


  • 1 ½ tablespoons of olive oil
  • ½ cup of sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 2 cups of vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup of tomato sauce
  • ½ teaspoon of chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon of paprika
  • ½ teaspoon of cumin
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 cup of uncooked white rice, I prefer a long grain such as basmati


  1. Using the saute function on your pressure cooker, hot the oil until hot and then add in the onion. Cook for about 3 minutes until the onion becomes translucent. Add in the garlic and cook an additional minute.
  2. Turn the pressure cooker to off and stir in the remaining ingredients.
  3. Set the pressure cooker to “seal” and set it to manual mode for 8 minutes.
  4. Once done cooking, quick release the pressure. Fluff the rice with a fork and serve!
