This rice pudding recipe reminds me of my mother’s rice pudding with more fiber and nutty flavor, it is soft, creamy and comforting. I love brown rice pudding for breakfast and dessert, I also love to make Instant Pot Cornmeal Porridge, Instant Pot Candied Yams, and Instant Pot Vegan Apple Cake.

Instant Pot Brown Rice Pudding

I love traditional rice pudding made with white rice but I haven’t made it in years, I decided to go with brown rice instead, which is definitely packed with more nutrients than white rice.

I figured that my readers who are wanting to add more fiber to their diet would definitely appreciate my vegan brown rice pudding.

The fact that I’m using brown rice I decided to prepare the brown rice pudding in the pressure cooker, knowing that making it on the stovetop would require more of my time.  It would take at least 1 hour for my brown rice pudding to cook, I would have to be stirring and watching the pot to make sure the rice isn’t burning. 

Cooking rice pudding in an Instant Pot means, I can just dump all the ingredients in the Instant Pot, close the lid, and go about my business until the rice pudding is cooked.
