Instant Pot Pineapple Ginger Sticky Rice

I have been an Instant Pot owner for about 18 months now, and some of my favorite things to make in it are simple things.  Like sticky rice ready in twelve minutes!

I love making sticky rice in my Instant Pot and I have decided to try some new flavors!  If you like this recipe you should also try my Coconut Water Sticky Rice or my Mango Jalapeno Sticky Rice

I have learned that to make rice ” sticky” you change the rice/water ratio.  In this recipe, I replaced some of the liquid with crushed pineapple.  Wow, this turned out great!

I love adding ginger to almost all of my Asian- inspired recipes.  I keep my ground ginger readily available.   I also enjoy cooking with crystallized ginger.  

Just in case you’re new at cooking rice in your Instant Pot, here is a video that will help guide you!
