With this sweet rice recipe, you’ll be able to add this tasty side dish to your meals with ease. My husband’s grandmother showed me how to make this delicious recipe when I first met her. Now I make it in the Instant Pot because it makes it so easy. This sweet rice goes perfectly with my gluten-free fried pork chops that she also taught me how to make.

Ingredients for Dairy-Free & Gluten-Free Sweet Rice:

2 cups long-grain white rice
2 cups water
¾ cup almond milk
⅓ cup packed brown sugar
½ teaspoon salt

A serving of sweet white rice topped with brown sugar.

Sweet Rice Recipe:

Place rice in a mesh strainer and rinse under cool running water until the water runs clear.
