Instant Pot Low FODMAP Basmati Rice – FODMAP-friendly staple made a little more hands-off with the help of a pressure cooker.


  • 1 ½ cups basmati rice
  • 1 Tbsp. ghee (or coconut oil)
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • ½ tsp. salt, or to taste
  • Minced chives, optional garnish


  1. Place the basmati rice in a bowl and cover with cold water. Let soak for 15 minutes. Drain and rinse. Set aside.
  2. Select the “Saute” function the Instant Pot. Add ghee and let melt. Press “Cancel” on the Instant Pot. Stir in drained rice. Add water and salt. Stir to mix.
  3. Place lid on top of Instant Pot and secure. Set vent to “Sealing”.
  4. Select the “Manual” setting on the Instant Pot. Adjust time to 5 minutes on “High Pressure” and cook. After cooking, let the pressure naturally release for 10 minutes before carefully switching the vent to “Venting” to release any remaining pressure. Remove lid.
  5. Fluff the rice with a fork. Serve warm topped with optional chives.
