This Instant Pot gluten-free vegan garlic millet rice pilaf is full of texture and flavor. The millet adds both nutrient value with protein and fiber, but also a fun textural component to the rice with the round shape. The fresh and powdered garlic really kicks up the garlic flavor in this dish. Millet is a seed, not a grain, so the release time at the end is a timed natural release to allow for the seeds to soften up just a touch more without cooking too much.

Ingredients:

2 tbs olive oil
½ yellow onion, chopped
1 head of garlic, minced
2 tsp garlic powder
1 cup dried millet
1 cup dried white rice
2 cups vegetable broth
1 tsp Himalayan salt
1 tsp white pepper

Directions

Select the Sauté option on the Instant Pot, add in olive oil, onion, and garlic. Cook until translucent and aromatic (about 3-4 minutes), then turn Instant Pot off.
