Plain wild rice, from Kuhn Rikon's instruction manual (15 psi cooker), when you don't have time to presoak the wild rice. Kuhn Rikon strongly believes that rice and grains should be cooked at LOW pressure (8 psi). If you increase the amount of wild rice, be sure you don't fill the cooker past the 1/2 mark. I created a separate recipe for presoaked wild rice due to the different rice:water and cooking time.
- In pressure cooker, pour in water and bring it to a rolling boil.
- Pour in well-drained rice, stir well.
- Secure lid, and bring to LOW pressure (8 psi, 1 bar). Once pot has reached low pressure, adjust heat to stabilize at low pressure. (My stove runs hot for a simmer, so sometimes I stack an extra burner grate or I press the steam valve of my Kuhn Rikon p.c. lid with a wooden spoon to keep the pressure at 1 bar.) Once low pressure has been reached, begin timing for 25 minutes and cook for 25 minutes.
- Remove from heat. Let pressure reduce naturally (this will absorb some of the excess water, if any).
- Remove lid and serve.
