Regardless if you are a die-hard Instant Pot lover, a Instant Pot Newbie, or an Instant Pot skeptic, I have you covered with easy, healthy Instant Pot recipes.
Just like some of you, I was a skeptic when it came to the Instant Pot. I held off for months on purchasing one, despite all the rave reviews I was hearing. When I was first brave enough to break my Instant Pot out of the box, I had a few failed experiments and I was a bit turned off.
Luckily, I did not give up on learning and mastering the Instant Pot, and I am here to share with you my success stories, my expermiments, and my list of what NOT to do when cooking with an Instant Pot.
Each time I update or master another IP Recipe, I will add it here, to my Instant Pot Recipes Collection.
Now, it is time to break out that Instant Pot, follow my advice, and be ready to fall in love with the ease of pressure cooking.

You will NEVER buy stock again, the instant pot cooks absolutely perfect chicken broth. And why limit yourself to just chicken broth? Use this same method for beef or vegetable stock in the instant pot as well.
My friend has stated over and over that she LOVES me for this recipe. She is notorious (like me) for forgetting to thaw out her frozen meat before she needs it–and this process has saved her from forgoing her meal plan! (BONUS: It works for ground beef, chicken, turkey, AND pork.)
If there was ONE thing I had to select was my FAVORITE thing to make in the pressure cooker, it is hands down dried beans. I will never buy canned beans again. Talk about a money saver!

Beet Hummus may sound odd (it did to me at first too). But MAN, Pressure Cooker Beet Hummus is DELICIOUS!
When I first tried out this method of steaming my potstickers in my pressure cooker, I was terrified it would be a huge disaster. Instead, the moist heat of the pressure cooker, steamed a large batch of homemade potstickers so easily. And this is one of the tastiest ways to eat leftover veggies.
A million ways to flavor oatmeal, but this is the creamiest, tastiest way to make oatmeal. PERIOD.
