I know I say this a lot, but This recipe for Instant Pot Sweet Potatoes really is simple! I think you’ll like them!

Here’s how we make Instant Pot Sweet Potatoes

Cut up your Sweet Potatoes, If they aren’t gigantic ones like we’ve been getting lately, you can throw them in whole, just poke a few holes in them with a fork first. (and add a couple more minutes to the time.)

place 1 cup of water in the bottom of your Instant Pot insert. use the trivet and either just throw those potatoes in there or you can put them in a handy steam basket.

Place lid and make sure it is set to SEAL. Then press pressure cook (or manual) and adjust the time to 8 minutes.

Instructions
  1. For perfectly consistently cooked Sweet Potatoes, I like to slice my them up before cooking. (you can totally throw them in whole after poking some holes in them if you want, just add 3-5 minutes cook time depending on size)
  2. pour 1 cup of water into the insert of your Instant Pot. Then put the trivet in.
  3. Now either place sweet potatoes right on top of the trivet OR use a steam basket (makes it easier to take out)
  4. place lid and check that lever is switched to seal. press Pressure Cook (or Manual) and adjust the time to 8 minutes.
  5. Naturally Release Pressure for 5 minutes or more. Then Release remainder of pressure. remove from the Instant Pot
  6. Season to your liking and enjoy! ~ My favorite is simply, butter, pink salt, and a little mozzarella cheese.

Instant pot brown rice

Instant Pot Brown Rice

Every one seems to make their Instant Pot brown Rice a little different. But, this is how I do it and it comes our perfectly fluffy every time!

Start with a cup of water at the bottom of the instant pot and the metal trivet. Instant pot brown rice

 

 

 

 

Next in oven safe bow. ( That fits inside the Instant pot) place your water, rice, and butter.  stir.

 

I love this Pyrex one!

Mine is a 6 cup!  instant pot side dishes

 

 

 

Place bowl on top of trivet inside the Instant Pot. Close lid, make sure valve is set to seal.

 

Set Manual for 19 minutes.

I usually let it Naturally Pressure Release a little bit, mostly because I get busy doing other things. But, if you are in a hurry you can manually release the pressure when it stops cooking.

Fluff with a fork, add salt to taste (and I usually add more butter too!)

Garlic Butter and Parmesan Brussel Sprouts Instant Pot Version

Garlic Butter and Parmesan Brussel Sprouts Instant Pot Version

Calling all the Veggies, “get in my Instant Pot!!!” 🙂

Steaming veggies in our “magic” pot is super simple!


This Post May Contain Affiliate links. Purchasing through them may result in compensation with no added cost to you.

Although it may be easy, I know all things Instant Pot were nerve-racking and intimidating for all of us at one time. So, I thought I would just quickly explain how I do it and of course you should try it and find exactly how you like it!

 

For most vegetables I would cook them in the Instant pot on the manual setting (high pressure) for 0 minutes! Yep! zero minutes! This means that it will come to pressure and then immediately be done. And always do a quick release to stop the cooking right away!  The only time I have it in the pot for any longer, is if it’s a little tougher veggie, but even then it’s usually just 1 or 2 minutes!

I’ll give a couple of examples:

First up let me show you these delicious, amazing brussels sprouts (No, I’m not even joking, they are my new favorite veggie)

Brussels sprouts

I adapted this to start in the Instant Pot and then finish in a pan (but actually you could saute in the pot, not sure why I didn’t think about that until now). The original recipe comes from my beautiful friend Tiffani Swain.

 

There are a few ways to put your veggies in the pot.

1. Straight in the pot with the water.

2. On the trivet or in a steamer basket .

3. In a bowl with the water on top of the trivet. This is called Pot in pot (pip) cooking. If you don’t have a steamer basket this is a great option to easily remove all the sprouts after cooking.

Whichever way you choose, you’ll just need a cup of water and the brussel sprouts.

Trim off the ends and if they are pretty big, cut them in half. Brussels in the IP

 

 

 

 

Close the lid and seal. Set for 1 minute and you’ll be ready in no time.

 

You’ll need Garlic, Butter, salt and pepper, and Parmesan cheese to finish these beautiful veggies.  Salt and pepper box

Have I posted about my awesome salt and pepper box?? I’m not joking when I say this is the first thing I bought for the new kitchen project. I had it sitting on my wish list for a while and as soon as we finished setting a budget and planning, I ordered it from amazon! 🙂 It’s my favorite and you can get one here!

 

Melt the butter and saute the garlic until fragrant. Add the steamed brussels to the pan and saute for several minutes, stirring frequently. Once done (I usually like a little crispy edges from the saute, but if in a hurry I just take them off after they are completely coated in the yummy butter. delish either way!) sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

 

we really do love these Garlic Butter and Parmesan Brussel Sprouts Instant Pot Version.

Instructions
  1. Prep the Brussel Sprouts by simply chopping the root end off. Cut the bigger ones in half for more even cooking.
  2. Place 1 cup of water into bottom of IP. Put brussel sprouts in the Instant Pot , I like to use a steamer basket best. (see note above for a few other ideas of what to steam your sprouts in)
  3. Close lid, set valve to seal. Select Manual for 1 minutes. (quick release when finished)
  4. To make the garlic butter you can use a small frying pan on the stove or just use the saute' function on your instant pot once they are done cooking. just simply remove them, dump water out Melt the butter Saute the garlic until fragrant 1-2 minutes add the brussel sprouts, add a dash of salt and pepper Saute in the butter for a few minutes, tossing to coat them well! transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
