Instant Pot Middle Eastern-Inspired Rice Bowl: Disasabled Kitchen Recipe

My Instant Pot Middle Eastern-Inspired Rice Bowl is quick and relatively easy to make. Rice bowls are common throughout the Middle East. Rice bowls may seem simple but the way tangy, sour, and sweet are combined in Middle Eastern cuisine causes an explosion of flavour in your mouth. Also, they are great balanced meal in one bowl.

You don’t need a lot of equipment to make this Middle Eastern rice bowl. You only need the following:

  • 3-quart Instant Pot
  • Tongs
  • Cutting Board
  • Chef’s Knife
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Fine Mesh Strainer
  • 3 Small stainless-steel Mixing Bowl
  • Aluminium foil
  • Trivet
  • Non-stick flat pan or frying pan

And don’t worry about buying hummus. I have you covered with a super simple and authentic Instant Pot Hummus recipe.

I hope you enjoy!
