Press the saute button on your instant pot.
When the display reads hot, add in the oil.
Add the onion, celery, and mushrooms and sauté for 5 minutes. Stir often.
Add the garlic, sage, thyme, and rosemary, and cook for an additional 1 minute. Press cancel.
Add in the rice, broth, and soy sauce. Stir to combine.
Cover and lock the lid (make sure the steam releasing handle is pointing to sealing).
Cook on high pressure for 15 minutes, then allow the pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes.
Flip the valve to "venting", then remove the lid.
Stir in the balsamic, cranberries, pecans, salt, pepper, goat cheese, and parmesan.
Taste and re-season, if necessary.
Serve and enjoy!
*Mushrooms release a good amount of liquid, so it’s really important not to omit in this recipe.
** I think this would be great with bacon or sausage, too! Read post above for tips.
*** *While the cook time is 15 minutes, it does take time for the Instant Pot to come to pressure, THEN it will start the count down from 15.
