In the busy hustle and bustle of everyday family and work life, we’ve recently discovered the wonderful convenience of the instant pot. The moment we got ours, our otherwise quick and stressful weekday dinnertimes became much more low maintenance without getting any less delicious. We have a pretty regular rotation of recipes and dinners that we make now, but we’re always still on the lookout for more scrumptious instant pot meals to try out!
Just in case you love the idea of having as many yummy instant pot meals on hand as you can just as much as we do, if not more, here are 15 of the very best ideas, flavour combinations, and recipes we’ve come across so far in our search.
1. Instant pot spaghetti
One of our very favourite things to use our instant pot for is to make quicker but still tasty versions of the homemade dishes we loved eating the most as a kid. That’s why we doubt you’ll be surprised to learn that we were very excited indeed to come across this delicious instant pot spaghetti recipe courtesy of Kristine’s Kitchen!
2. Instant pot butternut squash apple soup
One of the best parts of owning an instant pot in addition to or instead of just a crockpot or slow cooker is the fact that instant pots are much easier to make things like soups in! We’re huge soup fans no matter the season, but something about autumn like recipes really gets us particularly excited. That’s why we loved this instant pot butternut squash apple soup from Cooking With Curls so much!
3. Honey garlic instant pot chicken breasts
Meat is another thing that’s nice and easy to prepare in your instant pot, but the extra good thing about it is that it’s also very easy to add flavouring of different kinds to make an even more delicious meal! We made these honey garlic instant pot chicken breasts recently, also paired with rice and broccoli just like you see here on Kristine’s Kitchen, and the whole meal was a huge hit in our house!
4. Instant pot minestrone soup
Did we actually really catch your attention when we started talking about instant hot pot soups but you’re just not sold on the flavour we showed you earlier on our list? Well, if you’re a vegetable lover then we have a feeling you’re going to adore this hearty minestrone soup recipe outlined step by step on Life Made Sweeter!
