  • Place the Calrose rice and the Sprouted Brown rice  into the inner liner of the Instant pot or pressure cooker.
  • To measure water Hawaiian style, use your index finger to lightly touch the top of the uncooked rice itself, and ensure the water cames up to your knuckle line.
  • Cook for 12 minutes under High Pressure, and then let it release pressure naturally. 
  • Sprinkle with Furikake Rice Seasoning and serve.


I purposely chose to pair a calrose sprouted brown rice with the medium grain calrose not only because the size and type of grain but also because sprouted brown rice has a cook time similar to regular white rice.
