How Long Do I Cook Brown Rice In An Instant Pot?
That is an excellent question!
First of all, white rice is stripped of many nutrients, while brown rice is a whole grain and contains many good nutrients.
Brown rice has an outer layer called bran.
Bran is why brown rice is the color brown, and also the reason it needs to cook a bit longer than white rice.
So, to answer your question, brown rice takes about 20 minutes to cook in the Instant Pot, while white rice takes only about 6-8 minutes.
