Servings 4 People


  • Instant Pot


  • 1 cup instant white or brown rice
  • 1 cup chicken or vegetable broth (you could also use Better Than Bouillon Chicken flavor)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil divided
  • 10 oz frozen mixed veggies
  • 1/4 cup low sodium sauce
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

  • First, add 1 tsp of olive oil to the bottom of your Instant Pot (IP). Make sure the bottom of the Instant Pot, as well as about halfway up the sides, are covered with olive oil.
  • Add rice and broth to the IP. Cover, turn the valve to seal, and turn your IP to pressure cook, custom time for 3 minutes.
  • While rice is cooking, add all ingredients for the fried rice sauce to a mason jar and shake until ingredients are combined, set aside.
  • When rice is done, quick release pressure. Then, remove rice from Instant Pot and set aside.
  • Give your IP a quick wipe down and then add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the IP and turn on saute feature.
  • Add frozen vegetables and cook for 2-3 minutes. Then, push the veggies to one half of the Instant Pot to make room for the eggs.
  • Crack 2 eggs onto the other half of the IP and scramble using a whisk.
  • Once the eggs are fully cooked, add rice and fried rice sauce into the IP and mix all ingredients together.
  • Let everything cook over the saute feature for 2-3 minutes or until everything is warm. Garnish with green onion if you wish and enjoy!
