Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and cook, stirring continually, until the veggies soften and the mushrooms start to release their liquid, approximately 5 minutes. Turn the unit off.

Step 2:

Add the lid and set the pressure valve to “sealing.” Select the “Manual” cooking option on the high setting and set the cooking time to 15 minutes. When done cooking, allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, and then do a quick release for any remaining pressure. Turn the unit off and let sit for 5 additional minutes.

Step 4:

Remove the lid and fluff the rice with a fork while stirring in one tablespoon of fresh parsley and the toasted almonds. Serve immediately with the remaining chopped parsley on top. Enjoy this wild rice pilaf!
