Instant Pot Gluten-free Vegan Coconut Rice

Share some yum!

This yummy Instant Pot gluten-free vegan coconut rice is super easy to pair with vegetables and curries, as well as being delicious topped with some cinnamon and mango for dessert. The base rice recipe has a pretty light coconut flavor, so if you want to amp it up, add in some shredded coconut at the end. Top with slivered almonds for a nice crunch, or finish it off with a squeeze of lime juice!


Don't you just hate it when you are looking for a recipe, and you have to scroll through dozens of pages before you get to the recipe way down at the bottom of the page?
That's because they are trying to make money off you and Google requires it. We don't care - we're here to share recipes with you, and will never make you scroll through several pages only to get to what you want - the recipe. That said, it does cost us money to run the site, so if you like something you found here, please consider donating to support The Happy Gluten Free Vegan!

Other Amount:

1 tbs coconut oil, melted

1 cup unsweetened coconut milk

1 cup water

2 cups uncooked jasmine rice, rinsed

½ tsp Himalayan salt

½ cup shredded unsweetened coconut, optional


Rinse the jasmine rice until the water is clear. Add rice, coconut oil, coconut milk, water, and salt to the Instant Pot. There is no need to stir.

Close and lock the lid, set Instant Pot on the Rice setting.

After the Instant Pot beeps, allow to naturally release pressure and serve warm.

Add in additional coconut, if desired. Serve topped with vegetables or as a great stand-alone side dish. Note that this isn’t a very sweet version of coconut rice, so if you intend to use it for dessert, add in some maple syrup to taste prior to serving.

Note: We sometimes include Amazon links which provide us a bit of revenue and they don't affect your Amazon prices at all - this helps us keep the HGFV site free for everyone!
