I have really been enjoying using my instant pot lately and I have really been grateful for the time, energy and stress it has been saving me on meals while trying to get the boy’s caught up on the schoolwork that slid while I was sick at the start of this pregnancy. So I thought I would share my favorite recipes and ways I use my instant pot with you!
It’s so easy! I also used the same recipe the other day to cook pumpkin to freeze, which worked super slick! I’m really looking forward to using my instant pots next year to help preserve garden produce as with my fatigue this year and moving last year, a lot of my garden just went to waste with the amount of time and energy it takes to cook and preserve things in the oven and on the stovetop.
I made my own meatloaf recipe and used the cooking times below, but I did it on the wire rack in a glass bowl with a cup of water in the bottom of the instant pot, instead of using foil or just putting it on the rack. I served this with the spaghetti squash above and steamed veggies and it was the easiest meal I’ve ever made! 🙂
I have used my instant pot for this more than anything else! Soo easy!
Coconut Yogurt recipe if your dairy free.
Recipe if you are using raw milk and want to keep it “raw”
So much faster and easier than making it on the stove!
Great for cooking dry beans for chili (see below) in very little time!
My husband makes great chili that he just makes up as he goes and I have tried a few different recipes including different lentil chili’s all with fairly good success! If your using ground beef just brown it with onions on the high saute feature, add the rest of the ingredients, put the lid on, make sure the pressure switch is closed and hit the chili button! Serve as is or over rice to make it go further.
I like making it in the instant pot as I can set it and forget it. My husband on the other hand still maintains that it cooks better and faster in a pot on the stove. You will have to try it for yourself and see which works best for you.
Unstuffed cabbage roll soup!
This is a big favorite in our house! Even my soup-hating child asks for seconds!
I haven’t made this one myself yet. But my mom made it for my birthday and it was soo yummy! My son is corn free so she subbed the cornstarch for Arrowroot ( you could use tapioca as well) and left out the fish sauce.
Frozen ground beef!
Forgot to thaw your frozen ground beef? This is so slick and easy!
These are our family’s favorites! I hope you got some new recipes and ideas to try!
