Insta Pot Fried Rice

I love homemade fried rice. It’s a healthier option than a restaurant bowl of fried rice, plus you can customize it to your favorite flavors. We got an Insta pot to use in our trailer travels which means you’ll be getting a whole new batch of healthy recipes!


  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 cups of mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 2 large chicken breasts, diced
  • 3 cups white or brown rice, rinsed & drained
  • 1 TBS oil (Avacado is recommended, I like Sesame oil)
  • 3 1/2 cups of water
  • 2 cups of frozen peas
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce (I use reduced sodium)
  • 1 bunch of green onions


  1. On Insta pot, press saute and wait until the display says hot
  2. Add 1 TBS of chosen oil and eggs. Stir with a spatula until eggs are scrambled. Press cancel and transfer eggs to a plate or bowl.
  3. No need to rinse pot (yay!) plus you don’t have to worry about any egg bits stuck to the bottom. Add the ingredients in the following order; water, onion, mushrooms, carrots, chicken, and rice. Level with a spatula to flatten the rice enabling it to cook evenly.
  4. Close the lid, turn the pressure vent to Sealing, and press Pressure Cook on high or Manual: white rice – 3 minutes, brown rice – 22 minutes.
  5. After Insta Pot has finished cooking, release pressure based on rice choice. (Afer 10 minutes for white rice, brown rice, immediately.)
  6. Add peas, soy sauce, green onions, previously cooked scrambled eggs, and a dash of toasted sesame oil if desired.
  7. Stir gently, and serve hot.
