Rice and Brats (day 1) turned into Soup (day 2)

Instant Pot Rice and Brats

4 cups rice (I used brown rice, so made some adjustments, mentioned below)
1 qt chicken broth
4 bratwurst (We used the blue diamond packaged bratwurst from Aldi) 

Close pot, close vent, and turn to rice setting

While rice is cooking,
Slice bratwursts into quarters lengthwise and then into slices, and saute'

When rice is done, stir in 1/2 stick of butter, the bratwurst pieces and an equal amount of frozen corn.
Enjoy as is first night (we did add a little dressing to moisten the rice a bit~ some had Lighthouse Caesar and some had Trader Joe's Chipotle Ranch~ either way it was a winner).

2nd Night Rice and Brats Soup

1 onion - diced                                    1/2 container pureed tomato
2 large carrots - diced                          2 containers chicken broth
2 stalks celery - sliced and diced         Tuscan Spices*
Siracha                                                 Oil (Grapeseed or other oil)

Saute' one onion in instant pot on saute' medium heat for 5-10 minutes.
Add carrots and celery and saute' for another 10 minutes until all vegetables are soft.
Sprinkle with Tuscan Spices, and add pureed tomato and one container of chicken broth.
Let boil for 20 minutes then lower the saute' heat to low, add the 2nd container of chicken broth, and allow to simmer for another 20 minutes. Add Siracha to taste.
