Cilantro Brown Rice with Red Potatoes, fast and easy in your EPC!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

I love rice and potatoes together. And this brown rice with red potatoes side dish was delicious. It is also very easy, just throw everything into your InstaPot or Electric Pressure Cooker. Cilantro added before serving adds a delicate herb flavor that goes with almost everything. 

We enjoyed Cilantro Brown Rice and Red Potatoes with Three Ingredient Pineapple Thai Chicken, but the flavor of this rice dish will complement any main dish you serve it alongside. While pineapple and rice are natural taste partners this side dish will complement any bold-flavored main dish.  

This is a side dish we will enjoy again and again.

Cilantro Brown Rice and Red Potatoes
by the seat of my pants!

1 c brown rice
1 2/3 c water or broth
1/2 t salt
1/2 t garlic salt
2 large red potatoes

1-2 bunches fresh cilantro

Cut potatoes into 1 1/2 inch chunks and place in the bottom of the pressure cooker. Add rice, salt and garlic salt, and the broth or water. 

Set for 18 minutes of cooking time. When cooking is finished, allow pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes. 

Remove the leaves from enough cilantro to make 1 packed cup of cilantro leaves. Mince cilantro and set aside. 

When 10 minutes have elapsed, oven valve and let remaining pressure release. Remove the lid from the cooker, and fold in the minced cilantro. Serve.
