  1. Tried it, followed the directions exactly. Came out more like broccoli and cauliflower soup. Not at all what I expected from the picture or the intent.

    1. I agree. I even self vented the pressure and took lid off right after. It was hard to take a second bite, it was so mushy.
      Next time I will try 1 minute instead of 10.

      1. I don’t see “10” min anywhere in the directions. I only see “1 min”. It may take 10 minutes for the pot to come to pressure but the cook time is only 1 min.

  2. Ok, I must be missing something, here…

    The recipe is titled “Instant Pot Roasted Broccoli And Cauliflower” and the picture shows beautifully cooked and browned caramelized broccoli and cauliflower, just the way I like it…

    But there is nothing in the instructions to explain this step…

  3. This was great! To everyone concerned about the cooking time – I did the commonly recommended 0 minutes/high pressure/quick release for broccoli/cauliflower and it turned out perfect. Still slightly crunchy, but not soggy. I have the Crock Pot pressure cooker, so it doesn’t have a manual option. In order to achieve 0 minutes I let it get to pressure, and as soon as it set I turned off the pressure cooker and did a quick release. Very good!
