This recipe is an excellent option if you are watching calories. It's vegan, low-carb, nutritious and you can have it in less than 5 minutes using your Instant Pot.
Unlike the microwave, the Instant Pot keeps most of the nutrients and vitamins.
Broccoli and Cauliflower works amazing together and can be added to any main dish you make.
For this recipe I'm using a steamer basket. You can use one of these options:
Feel free to use vegetable stock instead of water for extra taste.
From my experience, 1 minute is enough and the veggies come out perfectly.
If you like the vegetables softer (for children for example), feel free to cook for 2-3 minutes on high pressure.
Can I add butter?
Yes. This steamed broccoli and cauliflower recipe works great with butter. Just add 1-2 tablespoon after cooking and mix well.
The butter will melt and you will enjoy a creamy side dish.
How to make it crispy?
If you wanna make the steamed vegetables crisp, broil them in the oven or by using the Air Fryer Lid at 375 °F for 2 minutes.
